Today, the Augsburger Domsingknaben are considered to be one of Germany’s leading boys’ choirs with a tradition dating back to the 15th century. Their role as an integral part of the cathedral’s liturgy, as well as regular singing of Gregorian chants, old classical polyphony, Viennese classical music, classical modern music and compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach ensure the choir’s high standard. It is demonstrated in concerts given within Germany as well as abroad, during music festivals, when producing CDs, singing in different opera houses or performing with the Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation.
Soloists from the Augsburger Domsingknaben are in constant demand on the stages of famous opera houses such as the Bavarian State Opera, the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf and the Opéra national du Rhin Strasbourg.
The Augsburger Domsingknaben have already worked with directors such as John Dew, Günther Krämer, Stein Winge and Jürgen Rose and performed the sections for boys’ choirs in operas such as Mozart’s “Magic Flute”, Puccini’s “Tosca”, Gluck’s “Orfeo ed Euridice”, Berg’s “Wozzek”, Debussy’s “Pelleas and Mélisande” and Janacek’s “Das schlaue Füchslein”. They regularly perform together with renowned orchestras and conductors such as Colin Davis, Leopold Hager, Roberto Abbado, Fabio Luisi, Jeffrey Tate and Mstislav Rostropowitsch. Numerous CDs with singing by the Augsburger Domsingknaben have already been published. www.augsburger-domsingknaben.de
