Born in Straubing, Gerold Huber studied piano with Friedemann Berger as a scholarship holder at the Hochschule für Musik in Munich and attended Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's Lied class in Berlin. In 1998 he was awarded the Prix International Pro Musicis in Paris/New York together with the baritone Christian Gerhaher, with whom he has formed a permanent Lied duo since his student days. In 2001 he was the prize-winner of the International Piano Competition Johann Sebastian Bach Saarbrücken.

"Gerold Huber, not only a a highly demanded Lied accompanist but a brilliant pianist, played with depth and expression and technically superbly." This or something similar is how the press always enthusiastically judges Gerold Huber as a lied accompanist. In this role he is a regular guest at festivals such as the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, the Salzburg Festival, the Munich Opera Festival, the Schwetzingen Festival and the Rheingau Music Festival or the most important concert halls such as the Cologne Philharmonie, the Alte Oper Frankfurt, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Vienna Musikverein, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, London's Wigmore Hall, in New York at Lincoln Center, the Armory or Carnegie Hall or the concert halls in Essen, Dortmund or Baden-Baden.

Gerold Huber works with a large number of internationally renowned singers, including Christiane Karg, Christina Landshamer, Anna Lucia Richter, Michael Nagy, Maximilian Schmitt, Martin Mitterrutzner, Julian Prégardien, Günther Groissböck, Georg Zeppenfeld, Tareq Nazmi and Franz-Josef Selig. As a chamber music partner, Gerold Huber has performed with the Artemis Quartet, among others, and he also works regularly with the Henschel Quartet, the trumpeter Reinhold Friedrich and the cellist Maximilian Hornung.

As a soloist, he devotes himself primarily to the works of Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms and Franz Schubert. Concerts have taken him to the Munich Residence, the Théâtre Municipal de Romains in France, the Kultursommer Kassel and the New Zealand Festival in Wellington.

In addition to two solo CDs with works by Beethoven and Schumann, there are numerous outstanding CD recordings together with Christian Gerhaher, all of which have won several awards. Without exception, the jury's reasons emphasise the congenial and symbiotic partnership of this duo.
