Burkhard von Puttkamer (Baritone)

Born: 1966 - Germany

The German baritone, Burkhard von Puttkamer, studied first to be a teacher, passing the 1st and 2nd state examinations in music and German. Then he studied singing with Professor Ernst-Gerold Schramm at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin.

Burkhard von Puttkamer sang the main roles in numerous opera productions: George Frideric Handel: Flavio (Flavio), Martin y Soler: Una Cosa rara (Lubino), W.A. Mozart: Cosi fan Tutte (Guglielmo), G. Rossini: l´occasione fa il ladro (D. Parmenione), Grétry: Blaubart (Blaubart), etc. First engagements led him to the State Theatres of Minden, Freiburg, the Neuköllner Oper in Berlin and to the Altonaer Theater in Hamburg. He appears regularly as a guest at the Jungen Forum Musiktheater in Hamburg.

Apart from his intensive argument with contemporary opera (Mauricio Kagel: Aus Deutschland, W. Knuth: Friedrich und Katte (UA), E. Sanri / E. Jandl: Die Humanisten (UA)), Burkhard von Puttkamer also dedicates himself particularly to the Lieder singing. He participated in master-classes with Professor Thomas Quasthoff, Professor Charles Spencer and Professor Rudolf Piernay, was scholarship holder of the Villa Musica Mainz with a course of Kammersängerin Christa Ludwig. With the International Joseph-Suder-Liedwettbewerb 1998 he received a 2nd prize and was scholarship holder of the Richard-Wagner-Verbandes Minden. In numerous Lieder recitals (for example, in Munich, Leipzig, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Berlin) the young baritone could particularly be heard as an interpreter of Franz Schubert's Lieder.
