Peter Grønlund (Tenor)

Born: Denmark

The Danish tenor, Peter Grønlund, trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Music and at the Opera Academy. He has also studied with teachers like Nicolai Gedda, Peter Pears and Owen Brown.

Immediately after graduating Peter Grønlund was engaged by the Opera in Münster, where he sang many leading Iyric tenor roles including Ferrando in Cosi fan tutte. In 1992-1994 he was a member of the Opera in Innsbruck, where he sang in works like Donizetti's The Daughter of the Regiment and Bellini's La Sonnambula. In Innsbruck, too, he appeared in the first performance of Carl Nielsen's Maskarade outside Scandinavia. In 1992 he guested at the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen as Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni. In 1994-1995 he was with the National Theatre in Mannheim as a Iyric tenor, and he now works freelance.

Even in his student days Peter Grønlund was very much in demand as an oratorio soloist, and as such he has appeared with orchestras in Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Denmark and the other Scandinavian countries.
