Best Young Artist OPER! AWARDS 2023. "Konstantin Krimmel has so much fun with music and storytelling that he just had to come to the stage. Here he can charm, revel, rumble or be joyful and funny like Papageno. His voice and musicality convince not only critics but also - and above all - the audience. Whether on award-winning CD recordings or in the opera house: Konstantin Krimmel is one of the most versatile and promising young German baritones on the international stage." With the extraordinary timbres of his voice, as a lied singer but also as a gifted actor, he belongs to the top group of lied interpreters, whether romantic ballads or dramatic performances.
The pianist Daniel Heide, who comes from Weimar, is one of the most sought-after lied accompanists and chamber musicians of his generation.

He has worked closely with singers such as Christoph Prégardien, Julian Prégardien, Simone Kermes, Britta Schwarz and others.
