The eight performance of the new Lied Cycle season (a coproduction of the National Centre for the Dissemination of Music, CNDM, and Teatro de la Zarzuela) will feature Swiss tenor Mauro Peter, a gifted opera singer on the rise.
The Lucerne-born tenor is coming to Madrid with a long and variegated list of lieder, many of which will put his skills to the test. For instance, he’ll sing Franz Liszt’s Tre sonetti di Petrarca, requiring an exquisite line, accomplished legato and well-rounded high notes. Performing with pianist Helmut Deutsch, Peter will also tackle a selection of Schumann songs based on poems by Heine and two lieder by Richard Strauss (Op. 21 and Op. 22).
Mauro Peter received musical training with the Luzerner Singknaben (choir), and then at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich with Fenna Kügel-Seifried and in Helmut Deutsch’s Lieder class. He took his first steps as an opera singer as a member of the Bavarian Theatre Academy, alongside conductor Ulf Schirmer, and the Munich Radio Orchestra.
In 2012 he took part in the Young Singers Project’ of the Salzburg Festival under the baton of Ivor Bolton and attended master classes with Thomas Hampson and Michael Schade.
