Come and hear why Gramo­phone, Opera News, L'opera, the BBC , La Rep­pub­lica, Le Figaro, and crit­ics world­wide have acknowl­edged Kunde as one of the most accom­plished opera singers of our day. His style, ele­gance, and pro­fes­sional exper­tise are an inte­gral part of his work with the Chorale. It is this expo­sure to the real world of pro­fes­sional music that sets this cham­ber group apart from the rest, illus­trat­ing the value of and need for high per­for­mance standards.
The GREGORYKUNDECHORALE is hold­ing audi­tions for choral and soloist posi­tions for its tenth sea­son. Mr. Kunde will be hear­ing singers dur­ing the week of March 1, 2009.

Her com­plete con­fi­dence in Greg's pro­posed sum­mer choral work­shop was, at the time, vision­ary, and entirely in keep­ing with her innate abil­ity to adapt to change and wel­come new ideas. Her gen­eros­ity, step­ping aside for Greg to take the prover­bial podium for that sum­mer, sparked the inter­est and enthu­si­asm and ulti­mately, the col­lec­tive drive that founded the Chorale you see here today. This part­ner­ship of Bezek and Kunde cre­ated an envi­ron­ment for singers to learn and expe­ri­ence pro­fes­sional per­for­mance stan­dards not typ­i­cally inte­grated into most choral train­ing settings.

Regarded as one of the most elegant and accomplished tenors on the operatic stage today, Gregory Kunde has appeared regularly at the world's most notable venues, including the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, Houston Grand Opera, Opéra Bastille, Théatre du Châtelet, Théatre des Champs Elysées, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and the Sydney Opera House.
...
Gregory Kunde is represented by Intermusica worldwide, excl.
...
"Gregory Kunde, a genuine tenor rather than baritonal Otello, is strong and forthright throughout."
...
"…norteamericano Gregory Kunde, triunfador en la pasada convocatoria con Otello, que es hoy uno de sus papeles estrella.
...
"... American tenor Gregory Kunde was triumphant in the recent production of Otello, which today is one of his star roles.
...
Kunde moved the audience to such an extent that many even applauded before the end of the famous aria ' la vita e inferno all' alas!'"
...
"El tenor estadounidense Gregory Kunde, con 60 años cumplidos, hizo una exhibición de bello timbre, potencia, sensibilidad en el fraseo y dominio técnico que maravilló a un público muy proclive al aplauso, tan vez en exceso. Kunde ya había cantado el Otello de Verdi en el anterior Festival del Mediterrani, y su don Alvaro fue vigoroso, sentido y brillante."
"American tenor Gregory Kunde, aged 60, exhibited a beautiful timbre, power and sensitivity in his phrasing, and technical mastery that amazed the audience, who were eager to show their appreciation. Kunde had already sung Verdi's Otello in a previous Festival del Mediterrani, and his don Alvaro was strong, sensitive and brilliant."
...
Gregory Kunde, que ya gustó mucho en el Otello interpretado sobre el mismo escenario (junio 2013), dibujó bien su angustia con una voz de amplio caudal, luminosa y cálida, que fue tornándose más segura cuando calentó del todo su instrumento. Si brilló en la famosa escena que inicia el tercer acto (La vita è inferno all'infelice), todavía resultó mejor en los dúos con Don Carlo y con Leonora del último."
"Gregory Kunde, who has already revelled in playing Otello on the same stage (June 2013), expertly portrayed his anguish with a flowing, bright and warm sound, which became more secure as he progressed.
...
"Gregory Kunde (Enée), who has turned sixty, but seems physically and vocally to be twenty years younger, boasts a solid instrument which is absolutely marvellous.
...
"The audience dissolved into applause after listening to Gregory Kunde (the best male opera singer) in Manrico's aria "Ah si, ben mio… Di quella pria" from the opera Il Trovatore. Kunde showed off a voice of great range, in complete evolution and growth, and was able to send shivers down the spines of the spectators from the first note."
...
"Gregory Kunde as Otello was a big surprise.
...
"There was exceptional singing from a cast led by Gregory Kunde as Grimes."
...
"The great tenor Gregory Kunde played Vasco in this version; a man who is courageous, but irresponsible in his love life; a character, as Hanslick would say, that "always loves the woman he has in front of him at the moment.
...
Kunde's entrance on stage immediately showed off his best quality: the resonant, decisive and confident high pitch register.
...
"Venice cast good voices where they mattered most, and in Gregory Kunde's Vasco found a heroic tenor with a bel canto background.
...
His medium has darkened and thickened (in a positive way) enough to sustain the tessitura, which - albeit basically central - explodes in frequent, sudden and strenuous jolts towards the top, with plenty of exposed high notes, which Kunde preserves intact: he actually held the treacherous high C of "vil cortigiana!
...
"Gregory Kunde was a magnificent Otello: with an immense voice, which was also flexible and capable of extreme refinement.
...
"American tenor Gregory Kunde's Radames was complex and compelling from the start - as was his clear Bb at the end of the first act."
...
I first saw Gregory Kunde a decade ago as Énée in Paris.
...
"Two real giants, the American tenor Gregory Kunde and Spanish baritone Carlos Alvarez, brilliantly marked both sides of the Shakespearean archetype.
...
"The biggest triumph of the evening was American tenor Gregory Kunde, whose portrayal of Otello was vocally powerful yet beautiful and nuanced with near-perfect phrasing, in a role which is very demanding both vocally and dramatically.
...
"Among the artists, there was also the tenor Gregory Kunde who is considered by many to be one of the most elegant and complete bel canto singers on the opera scene today…"
...
"The presence of Gregory Kunde at Liceu raised considerable expectations.
...
"Gregory Kunde was a perfect counterpoint to Flórez, with a completely different timbre that was sombre and dense, diving beautifully into the lower register.
...
"Gregory Kunde gave a compelling portrayal of Otello both vocally and dramatically".
...
"Kunde's performance was formidable".
...
"Gregory Kunde as Otello [has] the ringing tones necessary for the sudden thrilling outbursts that characterise the opera".
...
"Gregory Kunde's Otello was simply amazing; he delivers every nuance of character with the strength that Verdi singing requires, and combines it with the technical skill and elegance of phrasing that one derives from Rossini and bel canto repertoire.
...
Every accent, every color requested by Verdi is returned by Kunde with sensitivity and intelligence".
...
"Pollione was sung by Gregory Kunde, whose timbre and style are remarkable ..."
...
Gregory Kunde was credible and moving in the lead role, his powerful, somber tenor conveying the character's wrenching anguish."
...
"Kunde was an Otello par excellence...
...
"[The strings'] lean but incisive quality makes for some real chamber-musical moments … many of which tenor Gregory Kunde sensitively shares. Indeed, the two drinking songs and the porcelain-pavilion intermezzo are as energised as any on disc. Kunde can manage the impossibly high tessitura and never forces his voice"
