BIOGRAPHY

Swiss tenor Mauro Peter was born in Lucerne and studied with Fenna Kügel-Seifried at Munich’s University of Music and the Performing Arts. In 2012 he won the first prize and audience prize at the International Robert Schumann Competition in Zwickau and made his acclaimed recital debut at the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg with Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin. His accompanist on that occasion was Helmut Deutsch. Since then he has appeared regularly in Schwarzenberg and Hohenems as well as in leading concert halls and opera houses all over the world.

Mauro Peter has given song recitals at Lucerne’s Culture and Convention Centre, London’s Wigmore Hall, Vienna’s Musikverein and Konzerthaus, the Graz Musikverein, the Berlin Konzerthaus, the Dortmund Konzerthaus, the Pierre Boulez Hall in Berlin, the Frankfurt Opera, the Zurich Opera and the Teatro de la Zarzuela in Madrid. As a concert artist he has performed at the Munich Gasteig, the Royal Festival Hall in London, the Salzburg Mozarteum and the Verbier Festival. He is also a regular visitor to the Festival de Pâques in Aix-en-Provence and the Salzburg Festival, where he made his debut in 2012. More recently, he could be heard in Salzburg as Ferrando in Mozart’s Così fan tutte in 2016, as Andres in Berg’s Wozzeck in 2017 and as Tamino in a new production of Die Zauberflöte in 2018.

Among the conductors with whom he has worked with are Ivor Bolton, Constantinos Carydis, Teodor Currentzis, Gustavo Dudamel, Iván Fischer, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, James Gaffigan, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Manfred Honeck, Vladimir Jurowski, Fabio Luisi, Cornelius Meister, Riccardo Minasi, Zubin Metha, Raphaël Pichon and Trevor Pinnock.

Guest appearances have taken him to the Bavarian State Opera, La Scala, Milan, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, the Paris Opéra, the Komische Oper in Berlin, the Theater an der Wien, the Canadian Opera Company in Toronto and the Opéra de Lyon.

Following a live recording of Die schöne Müllerin from the Wigmore Hall, his debut album for Sony Classical was released in 2015, featuring some of Schubert’s Goethe settings followed by a recording of Dichterliebe and a selection of other Schumann lieder in 2016.

Plans for 2019/20 include performances as Tamino (Die Zauberflöte) at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin and at the Zurich Opera House, where he will also perform the title role of Handel’s Belshazzar and Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni). He will appear in concert at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, at the KKL in Lucerne, at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, in Modena und Katowice as well as in recitals at the Salzburg Festival, in London’s Wigmore Hall, in Graz and at the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg.

Home game for Mauro Peter. The young Swiss tenor, born in 1987, was not only born in Lucerne - here, as a member of the Lucerne Boys' Choir, he also gained his first practical musical experience. But soon he was drawn to the wide world. And on to the big international stages: Mauro Peter became a regular guest at the Salzburg Festival, where he performed , amongst others, Mozart roles such as the Ferrando in Così fan tutte and the Tamino in the Magic Flute. He still managed to work with the great Nikolaus Harnoncourt, was a guest at La Scala in Milan, at the Royal Opera House in London or at the Theater an der Wien. Above all, he became a favourite with the audience at the Zurich Opera House, whose ensemble he has been a part of since 2013. Mauro Peters is particularly passionate about the Lied: He will now sing for  his Lucerne festival debut the two most famous song cycles that Robert Schumann composed, namely the Eichendorff Songs and Dichterliebe. This fascination with expression has thrilled the public since his sensational debut at the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg in 2012. Since then he has been a guest on all concert podiums and opera stages in Europe, alongside the acclaimed song pianist Helmut Deutsch, who has since become a long-term piano partner since his first collaboration at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich.
