BIOGRAPHY

Gerhild Romberger was born and raised in Emsland. After studying music at the Detmold Conservatory of Music, she concluded her vocal training under Heiner Eckels by taking a concert examination. She completed her studies with courses given by the professors for Lied interpretation Mitsuko Shirai and Hartmut Höll. By now, she herself is a professor for singing at the Detmold Conservatory for Music and at the Folkwang Conservatory in Essen.

Her numerous concert performances at home and abroad include oratorios, Lieder, and modern music, and she participated in many world premiers. At the NDR Hamburg, for instance, she sang Händel’s Japhtha and immediately received invitations to further concerts with the Basel Symphony Orchestra, and the Munich Bach Choir, to sing Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder in Prague, to work with Ralf Otto in South America, as well as to perform at the Haller Bachtage, the International Beethovenfest Bonn, and the Munich Philharmonie. Here, the press enthused about "The beautiful voice of the alto, which, despite its clarity, exudes an unearthly warmth, loving mother at first, tender lover at other times – Gerhild Romberger sings, and time stops." (Süddeutsche Zeitung)

Her work focuses on all different kinds of Lieder recitals, as well as on contemporary music. The singer’s extensive repertoire covers all great alto and mezzo-soprano parts of oratorios and concerts from the Baroque era, the Classical and the Romantic periods, but also 20th century literature. Numerous radio and CD recordings document her artistic quality.
