Gerhild Romberger's artistic focus is on concert singing. Her broad repertoire includes all the great alto and mezzo parts of oratorio and concert singing from the Baroque to the music of the 20th century. Her work focuses on recitals, contemporary music and the works of Gustav Mahler. She holds a professorship for singing at the Hochschule für Musik in Detmold where she also lives. 

Gerhild Romberger will open the 2021/22 season with a song recital with Tabea Zimmermann at the Berlin Philharmonie. Other highlights include concert performances as Erda in Wagner's Rheingold in Amsterdam and Cologne under Kent Nagano, a concert of Frank Martin's Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke with the Munich Chamber Orchestra, concerts of Beethoven's 9th Symphony in Paris and, of course, also the music of Gustav Mahler will again play a central role. Gerhild Romberger will perform Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen in Tampere and Dresden, Kindertotenlieder in Prague and Des Knaben Wunderhorn with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. 

Important engagements for Gerhild Romberger in recent years have included concerts with Manfred Honeck, who invited her to perform Mahler's symphonies, Beethoven's Missa solemnis or the Great Mass by Walter Braunfels; her work with the Berlin Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, the Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra under Herbert Blomstedt and with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and Riccardo Chailly. She has also appeared with the Vienna and Bamberg Symphonies under Daniel Harding, the Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala under Franz Welser-Möst and Riccardo Chailly, the Vienna Philharmonic under Andris Nelsons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under Mariss Jansons and Bernard Haitink. 

The contralto appears on numerous recordings, including Mahler's 3rd Symphony with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under Bernard Haitink, which won the 2018 BBC Music Magazine Award for "Recording of the year". Her first solo album with songs by Gustav Mahler and Alfredo Perl at the piano was released by MDG in 2016.
