Praised by critics and loved by audiences for her beauty of tone and impeccable artistry, soprano Mojca Erdmann is a rapidly rising star in the international music scene. Of her return to the Metropolitan Opera in 2012, the New York Times wrote “Mojca Erdmann brought a sweet, beguiling voice and a demure sincerity to Susanna”. Known for her versatility in repertoire ranging from baroque to contemporary music, the BBC Music Magazine praised her as an “interpreter of major gifts”.
Mojca Erdmann kicks off the 2017/18 season making her debut with the Houston Symphony Orchestra, singing Dvorak’s Te Deum and Mahler’s Symphony No 4 under the baton of Andrés Orozco Estrada and heading to Japan singing Berg‘s Lulu Suite at Tokyo’s NHK Hall. Brahms‘ Ein deutsches Requiem is the vehicle for her return to the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona in November. Mojca Erdmann sings the gala concert of the WDR Rundfunkorchester’s 70th anniversary and the world premiere of Aribert Reimann’s new piece together with the Kuss Quartett in Hanover, Amsterdam and Berlin. With the HR Sinfonieorchester the versatile soprano performs Mahler‘s Symphony No 4 at the Alte Oper Frankfurt and Brett Dean’s From Melodious Lay at Zurich’s famous Tonhalle. She is also guest of the Mozartfest Wurzburg performing Jörg Widmann’s Versuch über die Fuge with the Irish Chamber Orchestra and Brahms‘ Liebesliederwalzer in Grafenegg. She closes the season with a recital at the Schubertiade Vilabertran together with pianist Gerold Huber. On the operatic stage the versatile soprano can be heard as Claudia in Toshio Hosokawa‘s Stilles Meer with the Staatsoper Hamburg, under the baton of Kent Nagano. Another very exciting project in the artist’s diary is an internship at the renowned Villa Massimo in Rome throughout April 2018.
