Margriet Buchberger (Soprano)

Born: Germany

The German soprano, Margriet Buchberger, began her singing studies with Martin Hummel in Würzburg. Since November 2000, she studied at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan with Professor M. Hayward. In October 2002, she continued her studies at the Conservatory of Würzburg in Professor M. Bürgener’s class, finishing her exams in 2004. In 2004 she received a scholarship from the “Cubec” - Foundation where young singers are supported by Mirella Freni and Nikolai Ghiaurov. In connection she had the opportunity of doing repertoire-studies with Cheryl Studer (2004-2005), Krisztina Láki and master-classes with Tobias Meisberger.

During numerous staged and unstaged opera-projects Margriet Buchberger co-operated with renowned artists such as Gabriel Garrido and Gottfried von der Goltz. She sang among others the role of Clori in George Frideric Handel’s opera Clori, Tirsi et Phileno with the Freiburger Barockorchester conducted by Gottfried von der Goltz at the Tage der Alten Musik Würzburg, and La Damigella in the Francesca Caccini opera La liberazione di Ruggiero conducted by Gabriel Garrido, touring Germany, Italy and Switzerland. Subsequently she sang Queen of the Night in W.A. Mozart's Zauberflöte conducted J. Straub at the Mozart Festival in Würzburg and at the Teatro Rosetum in Milan, and Musetta in G.Puccini's La Boheme under the direction of Fusco and P.P. Sovran at the Teatro Cividale del Friuli. She also performed scenes from Rigoletto/G. Verdi (Gilda), Die Fledermaus/J. Strauss (Adele) and La Traviata/G.Verdi (Violetta) at the Teatro Rosetum/Milan, as well as at the Municipal Theatre Ingolstadt. During the International Opera Festival 2007 at Schloss Kirchstetten near Vienna she interpreted the role of Konstanze (Entführung aus dem Serail /W.A. Mozart) under H. Khalatbari and Ph. Harnoncourt.

Margriet Buchberger’s oratorio- and concert-repertoire extends from Baroque until modern music. But her greatest love goes to Bach and most of all Mozart. J.S. Bach’s Passions and many of Mozart’s vocal works make part of her standard-repertoire. She is a regular guest at the Mozart Week in Rovereto/Italy and the “Patrimoine en Musique” in Lyon/France. In March 2008 she sang at the inauguration of a new branch office of the Mozart-Gesellschaft in Florence/Italy and in April she will be touring the Canary Islands with an opera-programme containing solos from Mozart, Puccini and Verdi.

As a singer and an actress Margriet Buchberger can be seen in an Italian short film about the Mafia. She has participated in several first performances; broadcast and CD-recordings are available.

Moreover, Margriet Buchberger is a teacher for singing pedagogy at the Eichstaett University.
