"Benjamin possesses a flexible, richly coloured baritone voice as well as exemplary clear diction"
From Dorset to Deutschland
Having been told a move to Germany would be “too risky” and “too early in his career”, British baritone Benjamin Hewat-Craw defied convention and moved from Dorset to Deutschland at the age of 22 and has been living and working as a freelance musician in Cologne for the past six years. The English-born singer released his critically-acclaimed debut album of Schubert’s Winterreise with the label ARS Produktion in September 2020. His specialisation in Art Song has taken him to venues such as the Cologne Philharmonie and Düsseldorf Tonhalle and has allowed him to work with collaborative pianists such as Michael Gees, Helmut Deutsch and Yuhao Guo.
