Wolfgang Schöne (Bass-Baritone)

Born: February 9, 1940 - Bad Gandersheim, Germany

The German bass-baritone, Wolfgang Schöne, studied at the conservatories of Hannover and Hamburg (diploma in 1969). His principal teacher was Naan Pöld. After winning international competitions in Rio de Janeiro, Bordeaux, Berlin, Hertogenbosch and Stuttgart his career began.

Soon Wolfgang Schöne's fame spread beyond Germany and he often appeared throughout Europe, the USA, Mexico, South America and Japan. Since 1973 he has been a member of the Stuttgart Opera and regular guest at the Vienna State Opera and the Hamburg Opera. He also sang at the Salzburg Festival. In 1978 he was awarded the honorary title of Kammersänger. Schöne first appearance with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was in 1979 in a concert of J.S. Batch’s Mass in B minor (BWV 232) conducted by Helmuth Rilling.

Wolfgang Schöne's extremely wide repertoire includes over 40 operatic roles and concert works from Monteverdi to Henze and Penderecki. He has played a dicisive part in the recording of all J.S. Bach’s sacred cantatas under Helmuth Rilling, and for many years has been one of the team of lecturers at the Bach Academy in Stuttgart. He sings the title role in Rilling’s recording of Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah.
