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. Highlights of the 2021/2022 season include concerts with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestera under Klaus Mäkelä, with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under Sir John Eliot Gardiner, with the Gewandhaus Orchestra under Andris Nelsons, with Concerto Köln under Kent Nagano, with the Accentus Choir and the Insula Orchestra under Laurence Equilbey, as well as with the Tonhalle Orchestra and Alondra de la Parra.

Together with Alondra de la Parra he will present Ravel's Cinq Mélodies populaires grecques and Mahler's Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen in Helsingborg, Grävle and in Milan ; In Raphael Pichon's project "La vie du Christ", which will be performed with his Ensemble Pygmalion in Paris, Bordeaux, Versailles and Essen, Julian Prégardien will take on the central role of the Evangelist.

A special focus of Julian Prégardien's artistic activities are song recitals and chamber music projects. In addition to numerous recitals, Julian Prégardien will perform Schubert's "Schwanengesang" with Martin Helmchen and Schubert's "Die Schöne Müllerin" with Kristian Bezuidenhout.

Julian Prégardien records exclusively for the label Alpha Classics. He is a professor at the Munich Academy of Music and Theatre’s vocal department, a member of the Schumann Network and artistic director of the Brentano Academy in Aschaffenburg.
