Christian Elsner


The German tenor Christian Elsner was born in Freiburg in 1965 and counts Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau among his teachers. Though he made his operatic debut in Handel, he is now associated with the German dramatic repertoire, and in particular with Wagner: his discography includes the title-role in Parsifal, Loge in Das Rheingold and Mime in Siegfried (all for Marek Janowski’s acclaimed Wagner cycle on Pentatone), as well as Achilles in Wagner’s orchestration of Gluck’s Iphigénie en Aulide on Oehms (‘Elsner seems to me one of the most promising young tenors around’ – BBC Music Magazine).
