Visiting the Schumanns The Dichter Trio takes us on an imaginary visit to one of the most iconic couples in 19th-century Germany: the home of Robert and Clara Schumann, enlivened by their artistic, musical, and personal exuberance. Bach was one of their models; Gade, Kirchner, and Brahms: their protégés; and Felix Mendelssohn—a close friend! An immersive look at their music-making that tells us more than a shelf full of books…

Following his First Prize triumph at the 2018 Queen-Elisabeth-Competition, Samuel Hasselhorn has quickly established himself internationally as a versatile artist who is equally at home in the genres of opera, Lied, and oratorio.
The current 2023/24 season is marked by high-profile projects, including three new productions at the Staatstheater Nürnberg, of which he is a member of the ensemble: his role debut in the title role of Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler, the title role in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, and the title role in Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande. Furthermore he will make his house debut at the Deutsche Oper Berlin (Wolfram in Wagner’s Tannhäuser) and sing the title role in Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia at the Staatsoper Berlin. Concerts in the current season will take him to the concert halls in Vienna (St. Matthew Passion) and Berlin (War Requiem), to the Alte Oper in Frankfurt (Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder), and to numerous European cities as part of a tour with the Collegium Vocale Gent and the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées conducted by Philippe Herreweghe (Mozart’s Requiem). He will perform recitals in Jerusalem, Geneva, Oxford, Madrid and Berlin, among others.
Hasselhorn was a permanent member of the Vienna State Opera‘s ensemble for two years, where he interpreted the title role in Don Giovanni, Figaro (Il barbiere di Siviglia), Belcore (L’elisir d’amore), Harlequin (Ariadne auf Naxos), Schaunard (La Bohème) among other roles. At the Staatstheater Nuremberg, in addition to numerous appearances in his regular repertoire, he made his role debuts as Pelléas in Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande under the direction of Joana Mallwitz and as Ford in Verdi’s Falstaff. Guest engagements have already taken him to the Berlin State Opera (Conte/Le Nozze di Figaro under the baton of Daniel Barenboim), La Scala Milan (Harlequin/Ariadne auf Naxos), the Gulbenkian Orchestra in Lisbon (Guglielmo/Così fan tutte) and the Opéra national de Paris in a ballet production of Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen.
On the concert stage, Samuel Hasselhorn has appeared at the Philharmonie in Munich, the Hessischer Rundfunk, the Bozar in Brussels, the Tonhalle in Zurich, the Barbican Hall in London, the Philharmonie in Luxembourg, the Theater an der Wien, and the Ludwigsburg Schlossfestspiele. He made his debut with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra in the Golden Hall of the Musikverein Vienna with Britten’s War Requiem conducted by Ivor Bolton, and sang the Christmas Oratorio on tour under Laurence Equilbey in Paris, Aix en Provence, and Budapest.
Samuel Hasselhorn is in particular demand and esteemed internationally as a lied recitalist. He regularly works with renowned pianists such as Helmut Deutsch, Malcolm Martineau, Ammiel Bushakevitz, Julien Libeer, Philippe Cassard or Joseph Middleton. Recitals have taken him to the Hamburg State Opera, the Hugo Wolf Academy in Stuttgart, the Ludwigsburg Schlossfestspiele, the Theater an der Wien, the Schubertiade Vilabertran in Barcelona, Wigmore Hall in London, Camerata Musica Cambridge and Suntory Hall in Tokyo, among others.
Samuel Hasselhorn is a prize winner of numerous competitions and studied at the Hannover University of Music, Drama and Media with Prof. Marina Sandel and at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de la Musique et de Danse de Paris with Malcolm Walker. He is currently under the vocal guidance of Patricia McCaffrey. His first two CDs “Nachtblicke” and the critically acclaimed “Dichterliebe²” were released in 2014 and 2018 on the GWK RECORDS label. On the Harmonia Mundi label, “Stille Liebe” (2020) with songs by Robert Schumann and the Schubert program “Glaube. Liebe Hoffnung” (2022) are available, both titles with pianist Joseph Middleton. In September 2023 his first album of his „Schubert 200 project“ will be released: “Die Schöne Müllerin”, with Ammiel Bushakevitz as accompanist, and in June 2024 his first orchestral CD will follow.
