Wolfgang Holzmair: You're inclined to take a man with a name like Wolfgang Holzmair seriously--the handle alone conjures up images of imposing, Teutonic talent. Holzmair was born in Austria and studied with the great vocal coach Hilde Rossel-Majdan (whose name is another horned-helmet-and-breastplates title, one that suggests you wouldn't want to meet the woman in a dark alley). What Holzmair developed was one of the most revered baritone voices currently working the world stage, an instrument that was initially applied to great compositions by Schumann and Haydn until Holzmair indicated his love for 20th-century compositions. Holzmair makes his North Texas debut with the Cliburn Concerts Series, performing a program that includes contemporary and classic songs. He performs at 8 p.m. in the Ed Landreth Auditorium of Fort Worth's Texas Christian University. Tickets are $10-$32. For more information, call (817) 335-9000.
