Agnes Giebel (Soprano)

Born: August 10, 1921 - Heerlen, Holland

The Dutch-born German soprano, Agnes Giebel, studied at the Folkwangschule in Essen with Professor Hilde Wesselmann.

Agnes Giebel's first public appearances were in 1947 in works of J.S. Bach. As a result of her great success she was engaged by RIAS Berlin for weekly series of Bach Cantatas in 1950, and she was a frequent visitor there afterwards. At that time she also went to extensive concert tours with the Leipzig Thomanerchor under Günther Ramin. She has sung many times with the Philharmonia and New Philharmonia Orchestra. She made several tours as a concert artist in the USA.

Agnes Giebel was one of the few singes who has made her name entirely in concert repertoire and she continued to refuse offers to appear in opera. She was the leading soprano singer of J.S. Bach’s vocal works during the 1950’s and the 1960’s. At a later period she promoted modern music. Her performances of works by Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg, Paul Hindemith, and Henze were praised.
