The baritone Adrian Eröd was born in Vienna. As well as at the Vienna State Opera, which employs him, Eröd sings at the Salzburg and Bayreuth Festivals, the Semperoper in Dresden, La Scala di Milano, L’Opéra de Paris, the Chicago Lyric Opera, the Zürcher Oper and the National Opera in Tokyo.
His repertoire includes parts from operas by Mozart, Rossini, Gounod, Wagner and Britten. As a concert singer, he has made highly acclaimed appearances with the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras, and worked with conductors such as Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Christian Thielemann, Riccardo Muti, Helmuth Rilling, Andris Nelsons and Sir Simon Rattle.
Adrian Eröd’s interpretation of Schubert’s “Winterreise”, which came out on CD recently, has its source in his great passion for Lied singing. He regularly gives Lieder evenings with his pianist Helmut Deutsch.
