Royal Academy of Music welcomes two new visiting professors2:05, 11th September 2019
The Royal Academy of Music has announced that two new musicians will be joining its roster of visiting professors: baritone Christian Gerhaher and violinist Chloë Hanslip.
Gerhaher is an honorary professor at the Academy of Music in Munich, where he previously studied Opera and perfected his vocal training in masterclasses given by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Inge Borkh. He and his regular piano accompanist Gerold Huber have devoted 30 years to teaching, recording and performing lieder worldwide.
Hanslip has performed with some of the world’s top orchestras, making her BBC Proms debut at 14 and her US concerto debut at 15. Her discography includes her debut recording Chloë, for which she won an Echo Klassik Award, the complete Beethoven Violin Sonatas with regular duo partner Danny Driver on Rubicon Classics, concertos by Bruch, which won a Classic BRIT, and concertos by Vieuxtemps, Schoeck and Glazunov.
Jonathan Freeman-Attwood CBE, Royal Academy of Music’s principal, said: ‘I am thrilled that two such wonderful teachers and artists are joining the academy as visiting professors. Both Christian and Chloë are notably generous and committed communicators at every level of their work and our students will benefit immeasurably. We much look forward to welcoming them both.’
