BIOGRAPHY

Swiss tenor Mauro Peter was born in Lucerne and studied 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 highly 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 opens the 2022/2023 season with a new production of Mozart's Magic Flute (Tamino) at the Opéra National de Paris, followed by Strauss's Salome (Naraboth) at Zurich Opera House, where he has been a permanent ensemble member since 2013 and most recently celebrated great successes with Mozart's Cosí fan tutte (Ferrando), Zender's Winterreise and as Nemorino in Donizetti's Elisir d'amore. He made his Boston and Carnegie Hall debuts in spring 2022 with a concert performance of Berg's Wozzeck (Andres) conducted by Andris Nelsons. In addition to numerous recitals, he can be heard in the 2022-2023 season with Haydn's Creation under Jan-Willem de Vriend and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, with Beethoven's IX Symphony under Andris Nelsons and the Gewandhaus Orchestra, with Mozart's C minor Mass under Manfred Honeck in Rome, with Bach's St. John Passion under Stefan Gottfried and the Concentus Musicus at the Vienna Musikverein, with Mozart's Coronation Mass under Kirill Petrenko with the Berlin Philharmonic. Furthermore, he can be heard as Tamino in Mozart's Magic Flute at the Semperoper Dresden and he sings Eisenstein for the first time in a concert performance of Strauss' Fledermaus at the Musikverein für Steiermark.

Mauro Peter has celebrated international operatic successes with his interpretations of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's works. He has performed roles such as 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, the Zurich Opera House and the Salzburg Festival. Mauro Peter has worked with the Salzburg Festival for many years. In addition to numerous concerts and recitals, he sang 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 activities, Mauro Peter has worked with 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 devotes himself intensively to the Lied. With his versatile programmes, he has made guest appearances at the Musikverein Vienna, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Pierre Boulez Hall in Berlin, the Cologne Philharmonie, the Prinzregententheater in Munich, the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, the Verbier Festival, the Lucerne Festival, the Wigmore Hall in London and the Salzburg Festival.

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.
