Katherina Müller (Soprano)

Born: Germany

The German soprano, Katherina Müller, studied singing at the Hochschule für Musik "Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy" in Leipzig and followed at the Studio of the Deutschen Staatsoper Berlin. She won prizes at the International Bach Competition in Leipzig and the Mozart Competition in Würzburg.

After first engagements at the Theater in Schwerin and at the Gärtnerplatztheater in Munich, Katherina Müller has worked since 1994 in Berlin and as freelancer. Opera appearances have led her to Vienna at the Festival "Mozart in Schönbrunn", as well as to many European opera houses as the Staatsoper Berlin, the State Opera of Prague, the Theatre du Châtelet Paris and the Theater Basel. She has performed roles such as Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro and Ännchen in Der Freischütz, and has co-operated with renowned conductors such as Christoph von Dohnányi, Philippe Jordan, Julien Salemkour and Sebastian Weigle.

Katherina Müller is invited regularly to appear as a guest soloist in concerts with renowned choirs and orchestras, such as the Chor der St. Hedwigs-Kathedrale Berlin, Monteverdi-Chor Hamburg, Thomanerchor Leipzig, Münchener Bach-Chor, Basler Gesangverein, Zürcher Bach-Chor, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg, Zürcher Kammerorchester, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and Virtuosi Saxoniae.

In the 2003-2004 season, Katherina Müller was connected with the Staatsoper Berlin. Beside Pamina in Zauberflöte, she sang here for the first time the role of Sophie in Rosenkavalier. In this role she also made her debut in January 2004 at the Nederlandse Opera in Amsterdam. In addition she could be heard in Elegie für junge Liebende by Hans Werner Henze in the role of Elisabeth Zimmer.
