Other projects have included Bach’s B-minor Mass with the Munich Philharmonic, Mahler’s Symphony No. 3, again with Herbert Blomstedt and the Gewandhaus Orchestra Leipzig.
Ingeborg Danz’s enormous repertoire consists of all major works – oratorio and concert – and she has made a number of productions for broadcast and TV stations and participated in several CD recordings: Mozart masses with Nikolaus Harnoncourt (Teldec), Bach’s St. Matthew and St. John Passions and B-minor Mass, both with Helmuth Rilling (Hänssler), and her first recital disc with Brahms Lieder, again for Hänssler.
