Deutschlandfunk: Klassik-Pop-et cetera Am Mikrofon: Der Bariton Holger Falk

„Nur feinsinnig kannst du nicht existieren“, sagt der Sänger Holger Falk im Dlf. Und so war er als Jugendlicher nicht nur braver Chorknabe, sondern brauste mit Vokuhila-Frisur auf seinem Motorrad durch die Lande. Musik von Bach hörte er dabei eher weniger.
Dass er eine besondere Stimme hat, erkannten die Eltern von Holger Falk früh. Sie schickten ihn als Zehnjährigen zu den Regensburger Domspatzen, später studierte er Gesang in Würzburg. Heute gehört der Bariton zu den gefragtesten Sängern seines Fachs.

Hanns Eisler Lieder Vol. 1 CD of the month November in Magazine OPERNWELT

The German Operamagazine OPERNWELT chose Holger Falks and Steffen Schleiermachers recording of Hanns Eislers Songs and Ballads 1929-1937 as the CD of the month November. Jürgen Kesting, one of the most renowned critcs of Singers wrote: „His color palette is dominated by fine, light-filled tones that one knows from the impressionistic paintings (they are thrilling in his splendid recording of the Francis Poulenc songs). Like a few french baritones – Pierre Bernac and Charles Panzera – Falk is a verbal artist of the highest order who masters not only the quiet intonation of a diseur, but also the harsh commands of a field marshal.“

Hanns Eisler: Lieder 2

Holger Falk and Steffen Schleiermacher release „Hanns Eisler: Lieder 2: Lieder und Balladen 1947-1962

This CD includes songs of the composer’s last period of life, after returning from exile – the time he spent in the GDR. Time of recognition an arrival as well as of resignation in face of the communist „Realpolitik“. Time of withdrawal towards the pure simplicity of art song. A collection of immensly beautiful songs.
