René Pape at the Morgan Library, Oct 21

On Thursday, October 21, the American Academy in Berlin presents celebrated bass René Pape in a special recital, followed by a reception, at New York’s Morgan Library & Museum. Pape is generously donating his performance to benefit the Academy. Concert details are below.

Deutsche Grammophon has produced a special edition CD especially for the recital, featuring previously unreleased recordings of Wagner arias sung by Pape.

The American Academy in Berlin was established in 1994 to foster greater understanding and dialogue between the people of the United States and the people of Germany. A private, nonprofit, non-partisan center for advanced research in a range of academic and cultural fields, the Academy annually awards fellowships to about two dozen emerging or established scholars, writers, artists, and professionals. The Academy also brings leading Americans to Berlin for briefer visits to facilitate a robust exchange of views between Germany and the United States. The Academy is housed in the Hans Arnhold Center, a historic lakeside villa in Berlin.
