Frédéric Anspach

conductor, classical voice (tenor)


Belgian classical tenor vocalist Frédéric Anspach was a well-known concert singer, specializing in oratorio and in lieder, from Renaissance to contemporary music.

He had a long international career from 1931 to 1977.

He was at least as important as a professor at the conservatory of Liège, where he founded the university choir, and (subsequently) at the conservatory of Brussels; among his students were José van Dam, Julien Haas and Jules Bastin.

He sang only rarely in opera; at the Monnaie in Brussels, he appeared in two roles: as Pelléas in eight performances from 1943 to 1946, and as Werther in five performances in the 1944-45 season.
