“Born in Heerlen, Netherlands, Agnes Giebel’s career began in 1947 and quickly became a fixture with the Philharmonia Orchestra under Otto Klemperer and the Leipzig Thomanerchor with Günter Ramin. Giebel’s repertoire was very varied but it was mostly made up of Cantatas, Oratorios, passions and masses. She was considered one of the greatest interpreters of Bach’s music and was also recognized for interpretations in lieder. She was also well known for her work on Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Her career lasted until the 1990s.
Later in her career, she served as a jury member for Alois Kottmann Award. She retired in the 1990s.”
