BIOGRAPHY

Julien Prégardien was born in Frankfurt in 1984 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. During the 2020/2021 season, he returns to the Berlin State Opera for a revival of Die Zauberflöte.

Highlights of the recent past are concert appearances with the Munich Philharmonic, the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra, the Munich Radio Orchestra, the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal and the Bavarian Radio Chorus. Julian Prégardien was “Artiste Étoile” at 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 debut with the Cleveland Orchestra, performing Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang under Franz Welser-Möst. During the 2020/2021 season, he is scheduled to perform with the Balthasar-Neumann-Ensemble under Thomas Hengelbrock, with the Dresden Philharmonic under Cornelius Meister, with the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra under Kent Nagano, with the Gewandhaus Orchestra Leipzig under Gotthold Schwarz, with the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia under Antonio Pappano, with Ensemble Pygmalion under Raphaël Pichon, with Concentus Musicus under Stephan Gottfried and with Les Talens Lyriques under the baton of Christophe Rousset.

Julian Prégardien’s artistic activities focus particularly on song recitals and chamber music projects. During the 2020/2021 season, he will be the focus of a portrait series at Cologne’s Philharmonie, with various song and chamber music projects as well as orchestral songs with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and Alondra de la Parra. Apart from numerous song recitals, Julian Prégardien will perform Schubert’s Schwanengesang with Martin Helmchen and Schumann’s Dichterliebe with Eric le Sage.

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.
