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’s projects for the 2021/2022 season included a new production of Salome (Naraboth) and a revival of Così fan tutte (Ferrando) at the Zurich Opera. On the concert podium he performed, among others, Haydn's Seasons under the baton of Andrés Orozco-Estrada at the Musikverein in Vienna, Bach's Christmas-Oratorio under David Afkham in Madrid, Mozart's Requiem with Philippe Herreweghe and the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra in Munich, a concert version of Berg’s Wozzeck (Andres) with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons in Boston and at the Cargegie Hall in New York. Furthermore, he sung the Evangelist in Bach’s St. John’s Passion at the Wigmore Hall in London as well as the Evangelist in Bach’s St. Matthew’s Passion with Rotterdam Philharmonic under Jan Willem de Vriend. Highlights of the coming months include Lied recitals at the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg as well as Mozart's Requiem with Manfred Honeck at the Santa Cecilia in Rome and a new production of Mozart's Die Zauberflöte (Tamino) at the Salzburg Festival under the baton of Joana Mallwitz as well as a revival of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte (Tamino) at the Opéra National de Paris.

As a concert artist he has performed at the Munich Gasteig, the Royal Festival Hall in London, the Salzburg Mozarteum and the Verbier Festival. He is also a regular guest at the Festival de Pâques in Aix-en-Provence and the Salzburg Festival, where he made his debut in 2012. More recently, he appeared in Salzburg as Ferrando in Mozart’s Così fan tutte in 2016, as Andres in Berg’s Wozzeck in 2017 and as Tamino in a new production of Die Zauberflöte in 2018.

Among the conductors with whom he has collaborated are Ivor Bolton, Constantinos Carydis, Teodor Currentzis, Gustavo Dudamel, Iván Fischer, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, James Gaffigan, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Philippe Herreweghe, Manfred Honeck, Vladimir Jurowski, Fabio Luisi, Cornelius Meister, Riccardo Minasi, Zubin Mehta, Raphaël Pichon and Trevor Pinnock.
