Anton Rosner (Tenor)

Born: Germany

The German tenor, Anton Rosner, has been associated with the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks for the past 40 years and is currently the doyen of the ensemble. Shortly after completing his secondary education at the Gymnasium of the Regensburger Domspatzen, he successfully sang his one and only professional audition and was immediately hired by Rafael Kubelík, at the time Chief Conductor of the Chor and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.

Since then Anton Rosner has regarded ensemble singing as the core of his artistic activity and for this reason has only assumed assignments outside the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks that promote ensemble singing. In this sense, he regularly sings solo parts in oratorios, such as the Evangelists in the Bach Passions, but stays away from the operatic stage. He has always devoted a great deal of attention to singing in small ensembles, such as vocal quartets and quintets. Anton Rosner looks back with deep gratitude on his many years of service in the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks, which has given him a long series of unique musical and concert experiencs, then as now, with world-famous conductors and singers.
