BIOGRAPHY

Julien Prégardien was born in Frankfurt and received his earliest music training in the choirs of Limburg Cathedral. After studying in Freiburg and joining the academy of the Aix-en-Provence opera festival, he was a member of the Frankfurt Opera ensemble from 2009 to 2013. At the same time, he developed an international career as a concert performer. Today, the tenor is an outstanding representative of the younger generation of singers.

As an opera singer, he has appeared at the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, at the Hamburg and Bavarian State Operas and at the Opéra Comique in Paris. In 2018 he made his debut at the Salzburg Festival as Narraboth in Richard Strauss’ Salome (director: Romeo Castellucci) with the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Franz Welser-Möst. In 2019 this was followed by his debut as Tamino in a new production of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte at the Berlin State Opera under the baton of Alondra de la Parra.

Recent highlights have included concerts with the Munich Philharmonic, the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal and the Bavarian Radio Choir. Julian Prégardien was "Artiste Ètoile" of the Mozartfest Würzburg in 2019, where he performed with the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra and the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, among others. In early March 2020 he made his Cleveland Orchestra debut with Mendelssohn's "Lobgesang" under Franz Welser-Möst. In the 2020/2021 season, he performed with the Balthasar-Neumann Ensemble under the baton of Thomas Hengelbrock, with the Dresden Philharmonic under Cornelius Meister, with the Ensemble Pygmalion under Raphaël Pichon, with the Philharmonic State Orchestra Hamburg under Kent Nagano, and with the Concentus Musicus under Stephan Gottfried, among others.
