Tenor

The Icelandic tenor Benedikt Kristjánsson studied with Prof. Scot Weir at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin. Solo engagements have taken him to the Vienna Konzerthaus, Walt Disney Hall in Los Angeles and the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. He has also worked with ensembles such as the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, the Nederlandse Bachverening and the Freiburger Barockorchester. He is a first prize winner of the International cantateBach Competition in Greifswald and an audience prize winner of the International Johann-Sebastian-Bach Competition in Leipzig. Kristjánsson conceived and performed a version of Bach's »St John Passion« for tenor solo, harpsichord, organ and percussion, which won the OPUS Klassik 2019 as »Innovative Concert of the Year«. His debut CD »Drang in die Ferne«, with songs by Franz Schubert and Icelandic folk songs a capella, released in 2019, was also nominated twice for the OPUS Klassik.
