Äneas Humm


Swiss baritone Äneas Humm, awarded the OPUS KLASSIK in 2022, made his debut at the Stadttheater Bremerhaven at the age of 18 and completed his vocal studies at the Juilliard School New York with Edith Wiens in 2019. Previously, studies took him to the Hochschule für Künste Bremen where he worked with Soprano Krisztina Laki.

After permanent engagements at the Deutsches Nationaltheater Weimar and the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, Äneas Humm joined the ensemble of the Theater St. Gallen until the end of the 2022/2023 season. Last season he could be heard there as Ophémon in Joseph Bologna’s L’AMANT ANONYME, as Doktor Falke in DIE FLEDERMAUS by Johann Strauss, as Papageno in Mozart’s Zauberflöte, or as Roucher in Giordano’s ANDREA CHÉNIER. Another highlight is his recital at the Schumannfest in Düsseldorf in June 2024 with lieder by Clara and Robert Schumann, Fanny Hensel, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Franz Liszt.

This season engagements brought Äneas Humm, for example, once again to the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona to sing AGRIPPA in John Heidelberg Spring, to the Bremen Music Festival, to the Beethoven House in Bonn and also, for example, to the two major Swiss festivals in Davos and Lucerne. He also performed Beethoven songs at Berlin’s Bellevue Palace at the invitation of German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier to open the Beethoven Year 2020.

His album EMBRACE (Rondeau) with works by Grieg, Liszt, Ullmann and Hensel, which he recorded with his long-time Lied accompanist Renate Rohlfing in the Sendesaal Bremen, was chosen by BR-Klassik as CD of the Year 2021 and nominated by the German Record Critics’ List. He also received the OPUS KLASSIK and was previously also awarded the Förderpreis of the Deutschlandfunk.

Äneas Humm resides in Berlin.
