Brian Giebler

Short bio 320 words


Exciting young tenor Brian Giebler proves the wisdom of pursuing one's passions, as he garners glowing reviews for his work in a broad range of repertoire, from early music to grand opera to musical theater to 21st century commissions. On dozens of recordings, and in appearances with the Cleveland Orchestra, The English Concert, Boston Baroque, Boston Early Music Festival, Grand Rapids Symphony, Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Mark Morris Dance Group as part of Mostly Mozart at Lindoln Center, Handel & Haydn Society, Trinity Baroque Orchestra and many others, the "deep expressivity" (New York Times) "shine and clarity" (Opera News) and "elegant phrasing" (Cleveland Classical) of his voice have been noted. Mr. Giebler was named Musical America's New Artist of the Month in January 2021. His debut recording as a solo artist - a lad's love (Bridge 9542) - has received rhapsodic reviews, charted on Billboard, was named Best Art Song Recording of 2020 by Voix des Arts, is an Opera News Critic's Choice, and is nominated for a GRAMMY®.


Mr. Giebler is becoming known not only for the quality of his singing but for his imaginative programming and refreshing versatility. He is a featured soloist as part of ensemble casts in two new recordings, of repertoire that could hardly be more diverse in their vintage or vocal demands: Les Fontaines de Versailles (1683) an opera by Michel-Richard deLalande, plus his secular cantata Le Concert d'Esculape (1683), with the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra and Soloists (cpo); and Charles Wuorinen's Haroun and the Sea of Stories (1986) an opera with Boston Modern Orchestra Project / Gil Rose (BMOP Sound). Haroun has just been released and the de Lalande is scheduled for February 2021.


Coming up for Mr. Giebler, pending COVID developments in the immediate future, are more French Baroque repertoire with Boston Early Music Festival, Michael Tippett's A Child of Our Time with the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, and Haydn's Creation with Santa Fe Pro Musica.
