Ian Pomerantz

Ian Pomerantz, bass-baritone

Bass-Baritone Ian Pomerantz, whose “multiple talents” were hailed by the Boston Music Intellegencer as “a rich baritone capable of broad proclamations…while maintaining the lyrical qualities of more nuanced passages” has performed in a choral setting with the New York Philharmonic, the Dresden Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Cleveland Orchestra, and the Lucern Festival Orchestra, and in that capacity has worked with Ton Koopman, Christoph Eschenbach, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Kurt Masur, Claudio Abbado, Joseph Flummerfelt, and others. He has recorded with Andrew Megill, studied harpsichord under Kathleen Scheide, and took part in a chamber performance of Handel’s Messiah with the New York Philharmonic under the direction of Ton Koopman. With interests ranging from troubadour song to the performance practice of Schubert and German Lieder, he is a specialist in the interpretation of Sephardic music and a member of the award-winning ensemble Voice of the Turtle. Ian holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance from Westminster Choir College and a Master of Music degree in Voice at Longy School of Music of Bard College.

We welcome Mr. Pomerantz to his first appearance on the Historical Piano Concerts Series.
