Swiss baritone Äneas Humm is a much-loved guest at many concert halls and opera houses around Europe and is one of the most promising young singers of our time. He made his opera debut at the age of 18 at the Stadttheater Bremerhaven, which was immediately followed by concert engagements across Europe and America. The music press praises his clear and expressive vocals.
In 2014, a programme dedicated to him appeared on Swiss television, and it has since been broadcast several times across Europe.
As a child, he first received his education with the Zürcher Sängerknaben, after which he attended the Voralberger Landeskonservatorium where he studied viola and singing. From the age of 17 he has been taught by Hungarian soprano Krisztina Laki, under whom he also studied for his Bachelor’s degree at the University of the Arts Bremen. Crucial to his artistic development is his work with conductor and artistic director Thomas Albert. He also works regularly with the Liechtenstein Sinfonie Orchester, the Arp Schnitger ensemble, the Musikkollegium Winterthur, the Winterthurer Symphoniker and the Bremer Philharmoniker as well the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.
As a lied singer, he works together with pianists Babette Hierholzer, Judit Polgar and Hartmut Hoell and gives recitals at renowned chamber music series and festivals. His first CD “Awakening” features works from Strauss, Berg, Ullman, and Wolf and was published worldwide by Rondeau / Naxos and has gotten splendid reviews by “Der Spiegel”, “Crescendo”and “Rondo”. In 2018 he gave his first appearance as the Baritone Soloist in L.v.Beethovens 9. Symphony at KKL Lucerne, and Mr. Humm also gave his Alice Tully Hall debut.
He studies at the Julliard School under the tutelage of Edith Wiens since September 2017.
