BIOGRAPHY

With a voice of captivating tonal beauty, Adrian Eröd scores the highlight of the evening, triumphing as Valentin.” Süddeutsche Zeitung, Munich.

The Austrian Baritone Adrian Eröd is a notable favourite among public and press at his base, the Vienna State Opera, thanks to his tremendous diversity on stage. Following his overwhelming success as Sixtus Beckmesser inWagner’s Meistersinger von Nürnberg with Christian Thielemann, Adrian Eröd was invited to sing the same role at the Bayreuth Festival. Since then, he has gone on to sing Beckmesser in Dresden, Zurich, Cologne, Leipzig, Tokyo, Amsterdam and at the Salzburg Easter Festival.

His performance of Loge in the Vienna State Opera production of Wagner’s Das Rheingold has attracted international attention, while his creation of the role of Shylock in the world premiere of André Tchaikovsky’s The Merchant of Venice at the Bregenz Festival was highly acclaimed. Since his 2001 debut at the Vienna State Opera as Mercutio in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, Adrian Eröd has been cast in such roles as Guglielmo, Conte Almaviva, Billy Budd, Pelléas, Eisenstein, Valentin (Faust), Albert (Werther), Olivier and the Count (Capriccio) as well as Prospero in the Austrian premiere of Thomas Adès’ The Tempest. In Aribert Reimann’s Medea he performed the leading male role of Jason at the piece’s world premiere, a role that was written specifically for him. Beyond Vienna, the baritone’s career has taken him to the Semperoper Dresden, Berlin State Opera, Teatro alla Scala Milano and Teatro Fenice in Venice, as well as the Paris Opera, Teatro Real in Madrid, Houston Grand Opera, Chicago Lyric Opera, the Hamburg State Opera, the Oper Frankfurt and the New National Opera Tokyo.

Parallel to his opera career, Adrian Eröd has achieved great success on the concert stage. He has appeared with Riccardo Muti and the Vienna Philharmonic, Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic, while notable performances include Bach’s St. Matthew’s Passion with Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Zemlinsky’s Lyric Symphony with Christian Thielemann, Orff’s Carmina Burana with Fabio Luisi and Alain Altinoglu, Brahms’ German Requiem with Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla and Helmut Rilling, Bach’s St.John’s Passion with Philippe Jordan, Mahler’s 8th Symphony with Andris Nelsons, Fauré’s Requiem with Myung-Whun Chung and Mendelssohn’s Elijah with Marek Janowski. Additional appearances have included engagements at the Suntory Hall Tokyo, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Philharmonie in Berlin, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Madrid’s Auditorio Nacional, the Vienna Musikverein and Konzerthaus, the Lucerne Festival, the Salzburg Easter Festival and Mozartwoche, the Styriarte Festival in Graz and the Beethoven Festival in Bonn.

Adrian Eröd’s affection for Lied and has led him to perform recitals in the Musikverein in Vienna and Graz, the Brucknerhaus in Linz, the Lisztzentrum Raiding, the Tokyo Spring Festival and the Carinthian Summer Festival. His recordings include songs of Franz Liszt and Schubert’s Winterreise, as well as a new recital soon to be released.
