BIOGRAPHY

Georg Walther

Bass-Baritone and Pianist

The bass-baritone Georg Walther was born in Pforzheim and went on to successfully study vocals and piano at the conservatory of Freiburg im Breisgau. While pursuing his musical studies, he took additional acting classes and performed the lead role in Carl Orff's Astutuli in Freiburg.

This was followed by further post-graduate studies in vocals under Prof. Hanno Blaschke and Prof. Josef Metternich, as well as, Prof. Dr. Erik Werba's master-class in song composition at the conservatory in Munich.

He made his debut appearance as the leading role Stenio, at the premiere of "Maddalena" by Prokofieff in the Berlin Kammeroper. He then went on to complete a one year long guest study programme under Michael Trimble, Susan Almasi and Paul Sperry at the "Julliard School of Music" in New York.

Between 1992-1994 he was involved as bass-baritone at the theatre in Ulm and had several appearances at fairs and oratories, including an appearance in the basilica of Ulm-Wiblingen.

Since then he has worked as an independent opera and concert singer in Munich and beyond; with international appearances in Seoul, Sardinia, New York and Switzerland, among others. Throughout his time as an independent singer he has worked with world renown conductors such as Tristan Schick and Hans-Rudolf Zoebeley, as well as with famous orchestras like the Munich Residenz Orchestra or the Prague Philharmonia. He has also appeared in several radio and television programmes.

Own offbeat projects, such as GIANO - eastern sounds merging with western music; a performance with 2 female pianists accompanying his singing with one grand piano on either side; stereo synchronous singing; or taking part in extreme events like Allora & Calzadillas worldwide shown spectacles 'wake up, clamor, sediments sentiments, figures of speech'; are another facet of his versatility.

Georg Walther is part of the GEMA as a composer under his pseudonym 'Geo Water' and has released 26 piano pieces. All of his works have been composed and developed solely within the boundaries of his mind and played into the recording exclusively and in their entirety through memory.
