BIOGRAPHY

Swiss tenor Mauro Peter was born in Lucerne and completed his studies at the University of Music and the Performing Arts in Munich. In 2012 he won both first prize and the audience prize at the International Robert Schumann Competition in Zwickau and made his highly acclaimed recital debut at the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg with Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin. He has since appeared as a regular guest in Schwarzenberg and Hohenems, as well as in leading concert halls and opera houses worldwide.

Mauro Peter opened the 2022/23 season with a new production of Mozart's Magic Flute (Tamino) at the Opéra national de Paris, followed by Strauss' Salome (Naraboth) at Opernhaus Zurich, where he has been a permanent ensemble member since 2013. His most recent successes there included Mozart's Cosí fan tutte (Ferrando), Zender's Winterreise and as Nemorino in Donizetti's Elisir d'amore. Alongside his numerous recital appearances, he made his Boston and Carnegie Hall debuts in spring 2022 with a concert performance of Berg's Wozzeck (Andres) conducted by Andris Nelsons. Further highlights included Haydn's Creation under Jan-Willem de Vriend and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 under Andris Nelsons and the Gewandhaus Orchestra, Mozart's C minor Mass under Manfred Honeck in Rome, Bach's St. John Passion under Stefan Gottfried and Concentus Musicus at the Vienna Musikverein. In summer 2023, Mauro Peter celebrates two important role debuts, first at the Graz Musikverein as Eisenstein in a concert performance of Strauss' Fledermaus, and with Concerto Köln, singing his first Loge in Wagner's Rheingold under the baton of Kent Nagano as part of the Musikfest Dresden, as well as at the Kölner Philharmonie, and the Ravello and Lucerne festivals.

The 2023/24 season begins with Mendelssohn's "Lobgesangs-Symphonie" with the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra in Pisa, then with the Kioi Hall Chamber Orchestra conducted by Trevor Pinnock in Tokyo, followed by the Vienna Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marie Jacquot at the Vienna Musikverein. The tenor will subsequently tour Mozart's Requiem with the Ensemble Concert de la Loge, conducted by Julien Chauvin, followed by Bach's Christmas Oratorio with the Gewandhaus Orchestra, conducted by Thomaskantor Andreas Reize. He can also be heard performing Haydn's The Seasons under Jan Willem de Vriend, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 under Antonello Manacorda, Bach's St. John Passion with the Concertgebouw Orkest under Trevor Pinnock and the Montréal Symphony Orchestra under Masaki Suzuki, and once more Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 and the Orchestre de Paris under Klaus Mäkelä.

On the opera stage he can be seen performing Ferrando in Mozart's Così fan tutte in Zurich, as well as Tamino in Mozart's The Magic Flute in Dresden.

Mauro Peter has celebrated international operatic successes with his interpretations of the works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. His roles have included Belmonte, Ferrando, Don Ottavio and Tamino at the Canadian Opera Company in Toronto, the Bavarian State Opera, the Opéra de Lyon, the Opéra national de Paris, the Royal Opera House in London, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Teatro Real in Madrid, the Theater an der Wien, Opernhaus Zurich and the Salzburg Festival.

The singer’s close collaboration with the Salzburg Festival over the years has seen him appear in numerous concerts and recitals, performing additionally the roles of Ferrando in Così fan tutte in 2016, Andres in Berg's Wozzeck in 2017 and Tamino in The Magic Flute in 2018 and 2022.

Through his varied concert engagements, Mauro Peter has developed a broad concert repertoire, having worked alongside conductors such as David Afkham, Ivor Bolton, Constantinos Carydis, Teodor Currentzis, Gustavo Dudamel, Ádám Fischer, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Philippe Herreweghe, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Manfred Honeck, Daniel Hope, Vladimir Jurowski, Ton Koopman, Fabio Luisi, Zubin Mehta, Riccardo Minasi, Jonathan Nott, Trevor Pinnock and Andrés Orozco-Estrada.

Mauro Peter is particularly dedicated to the Lied repertoire and has appeared in versatile recital programmes at the Vienna Musikverein and Konzerthaus, the Pierre Boulez Hall in Berlin, the Cologne Philharmonie, the Prinzregententheater in Munich, the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, the Verbier Festival, Lucerne Festival, London’s Wigmore Hall and the Salzburg Festival.

Following a recording of Die schöne Müllerin live from Wigmore Hall, he went on to release a debut album for Sony Classical in 2015, featuring some of Schubert’s Goethe settings, and a recording of Dichterliebe and a selection of other Schumann lieder in 2016.
