Nele Gramß (Soprano)

Born: Bad Rodach, Bavaria, Germany

The German soprano and singing teacher, Nele Gramß, grew up in a family where her broad musical interests began. She studied in Würzburg, Munich and Amsterdam. Initiially she studied school music and viola da gamba, and then singing. Margreet Honig, Barbara Schlick and Monika Bürgener are and were important teachers for her. Since her graduation in Amsterdam in 1992, she is a freelance singer.

Although her extensive repertoire encompasses music of all periods and genres, Nele Gramß specialises in music of the 17th century. She most frequently sings the J.S. Bach oratorios, Monteverdi, Heinrich Schütz and other polyphonic vocal works. Next to oratorio, she specialises in chamber music: she is a permanent member of Ensemble Movimento and the Gesualdo Consort Amsterdam. She also gives Lied recitals (Romantic and French song) with her piano accompanist Annie Gicquel and performs with a wide range of ensembles and orchestras. Last summer (2009) she took part in two performances of Arthur Honegger’s Jeanne d’Arc. Another recent highlight were staged performances of George Frideric Handel’s Saul in St. Egidien’s Church in Nuremberg.

For several years Nele Gramß shares her experience with young singers at the Musikhochschulen Würzburg and Bremen.
