“There are recitals that capture the audience from the first song and never let go. “Songs of the Night” by Christian Miedl definitely belongs to this group, because the twenty art songs on this CD portrait have an absolutely magical effect on the listener.”
(Das Opernglas, September 2020, review of the solo album „Songs of the Night“)
From his very beginnings, the intimate form of Lied has been a part of Christian Miedl's life as a musician. It was the main focus of his studies at Salzburg Mozarteum and also of his competition programs. Later, during his years at the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, he also introduced a new Lied series with several concerts per season. Numerous recital programs show his in-depth knowledge of the repertoire.
