Egbert Junghanns (Bass)

Born: Antonsthal in the Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany

The German bass, Egbert Junghanns, sang in the Choir of the Dresden Kreuzkirche, then studied singing in Dresden with Professor Christiane Junghanns.

Egbert Junghanns' career began at the Chemnitz Opera House, where he mastered a broad repertoire of parts for his voice. Later he sang at the Saxon State Opera in Dresden and received invitations to make guest appearances at leading opera houses. He won first prize at the Seventh International J.S. Bach Competition in Leipzig and was a prize-winner at international competitions in Karlovy Vary, Zwickau and Vienna.

Egbert Junghanns has made a name for himself particularly as a concert singer and Lieder interpreter. Conductors such as Bernard Haitink, Kurt Masur, Sir Colin Davis and Peter Schreier have engaged him for complete cycles. He is long-standing artist partner of Ludwig Güttler and Virtuosi Saxoniae. Gust appearances take him to many European countries, America, Japan and other Asian countries.
