Matthias Goerne, baritone
Matthias Goerne is regularly invited to the most important festivals and concert halls in the world, such as Wigmore Hall in London or Carnegie Hall in New York. During his prominent career as a lieder interpreter, he has been accompanied by pianists such as Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Leif Ove Andsnes, Alfred Brendel, Christoph Eschenbach, Elisabeth Leonskaja and Alexander Schmalcz. Since making his opera singer debut at the Salzburg Fetival in 1997, in the role of Papageno (The Magic Flute), he has been invited to perform at the ROH in London, Teatro Real in Madrid, the Semper Opera House in Dresden, and the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. He has performed, among others, the Wagnerian roles of Wolfram (Tannhäuser), Kurwenal (Tristan und Isolde) and the leads in Lear by Aribert Reimann and Wozzeck by Alban Berg.


Alexander Schmalcz received his first piano lessons as a chorister in Dresden Kreuzchor. He studied at the Dresden and Utrecht conservatoires and at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. He has won numerous awards, including the Nederlands Impressariaat competition in 1995 (together with his piano trio), and the Gerald Moore Award and Megan Foster Accompanist Prize in 1996. He frequently performs in leading concerts halls, such as London's Wigmore Hall, Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Royal Opera House in Londond, and the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. He works regularly with singers like Matthias Goerne, Peter Schreier, Grace Bumbry, Konrad Jarnot and Stephan Loges. His chamber music partners include the Petersen Quartet and cellist Claus Reichardt. He has been a professor at the Robert Schumann Conservatori in Düsseldorf since 1999.
