Critics and audiences around the world agree: Thomas Bauer is one of the most fascinating vocal artists of our time. Reviewers of his numerous orchestral concerts rave about the “sheer virile force” that comes with “an unusually precise diction, emotional intensity and rare beauty in his baritonal sound” (Opernglas). Featured as an Artist-in Residence at Brussels’s Palais des Beaux-Arts BOZAR, he has appeared with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Bernard Haitink, Concentus Musicus under Nikolaus Harnoncourt, the Filarmonica della Scala under Zubin Mehta, the Leipzig Gewandhaus under Herbert Blomstedt and Riccardo Chailly, as well as the Vienna Philharmonic at the Salzburg Festival and the National Symphony in Washington, D.C. Many of his recordings have received glowing reviews and prestigious awards.
