Veronika Winter (Soprano)

Born: Limburg an der Lahn, Germany

The German soprano, Veronika Winter, began her musical career in the Limburg Domchor choir. She then studied musicology and Italian at the University of Erlangen and singing under Norma Lerer in Nuremberg. In 1989 she began formal vocal sudies as a student of Prof. Eva-Maria Molnàr at the Heidelberg-Mannheim High School of Music. She continued her studies in 1991 with Karlheinz Jarius in Frankfurt, and after moving to Köln has continued with Barbara Schlick. To get more involved in her main interest, ancient music, she has visited courses of interpretation by a number of teachers for baroque singing, including Charles Brett.

Veronika Winter is not only pursuing a career as a soloist, but also works with various well-known ensembles in numerous concerts both in Germany and abroad, such as Musika fiata Cologne, the Rheinische Kantorei, the Stuttgart Chamber Choir, Weser-Renassance Bremen, and with the Himlische Cantorey in Hamburg. She continues to work as an ensemble singer as well. Her extensive concert work is mainly dedicated to Baroque music. However, her repertoire also includes music of the classical and romantic periods, as well as the contemporary. She has appeared at various festivals of early music. In June 2004 she participated in a performance of J.S. Bach’s Matthäus-Passion (BWV 244) conducted by Hermann Max at the Israel Festival Jerusalem.

Veronika Winter has participated in many radio and CD recordings.
