Knut Schoch (Tenor)

Born: Germany

The German tenor, Knut Schoch, studied singing in Hamburg with Wilfried Jochens and Alan Speer, completing his studies by attending a series of master-classes. His repertory extends from medieval works to the premières of contemporary pieces, as well as including oratorios, chamber music, Lieder and Baroque and Classical operas.

Knut Schoch specialises in the historical performance practice of music written before 1800, notably the oratorios of George Frideric Handel and J.S. Bachís Passions, in which he sings the role of the Evangelist. He is much in demand as a soloist both at home and abroad and regularly appears at leading festivals including the Fête díAutomne in Paris, the Göttingen Händel Festival and the Schwetzingen, Schleswig-Holstein and Vienna Festivals. Radio and television recordings as well as CDís reflect the range of his activities. He has worked with many well-known ensembles, including the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, Musica Fiata of Cologne, Nederlandse Bachvereniging and the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble, and has appeared with conductors of the stature of Thomas Hengelbrock, Ton Koopman and Sigiswald Kuijken. Among the awards that Knut Schoch has received are the 1995 Masefield Grant from F.V.S. Society and first prize at the 1999 International Musica Antiqua Competition in Bruges.

In 1993 Knut Schoch was appointed visiting professor of historical performing practice at the Hamburg Conservatory. In 1999 he became professor at the Hamburg Musikhochschule.
