The German mezzo-soprano, Ursula Eittinger, studied singing at the Detmold Music Academy, where she was awarded a concert and opera diploma with distinction in 1990. Whilst she was still a student she took part in various master-classes, for example with Sena Jurinac, Kurt Widmer and Charles Brett.
Ursula Eittinger has worked with many ensembles, including the WDR Radio Orchestra, the Hannover and Hamburg Radio Orchestras, the Bach-Collegium Stuttgart (under Helmuth Rilling) and the Münchner Bachsolisten. Concert tours have taken her to London (Royal Albert Hall) and Barcelona (Palau de la Musica). She performs regularly at many festivals, such as the BBC Prom Concerts, the Schleswig-Holstein Festival and the Cracow International Festival for Old Music. The variety which characterises the repertoire shows clearly in her television, radio and CD recordings (for example Schumann duets with Scot Weir), also in a duet programme with Barbara Schlick.
