Juliane Banse ThumbJuliane Banse

Few artists of her generation are as successful in so many spheres and with such varied repertoire as Juliane Banse. Her extremely broad opera repertoire ranges from the Marschallin, Countess in Figaro, Fiordiligi, Donna Elvira, Vitellia, Genoveva, Leonore, Tatyana, Arabella, to Grete (Schreker’s Der ferne Klang). She made her stage debut as a twenty-year-old in the role of Pamina in Harry Kupfer’s production of The Magic Flute at the Komische Oper Berlin. Juliane Banse was born in southern Germany and grew up in Zurich. She took lessons first with Paul Steiner and later with Ruth Rohner at the Zurich Opera House, completing her studies under Brigitte Fassbaender and Daphne Evangelatos in Munich.

From the winter semester 2016/2017 Juliane Banse herself took on a guest professorship at the Robert Schumann Academy in Dusseldorf. Juliane Banse is a well-received guest at the great opera houses as at the Zurich Opera House, at the Theater an der Wien, at the State Opera in Vienna, at the State Opera in Berlin, at the Lyric Opera Chicago and at the MET.

Juliane Banse is also highly in demand as a concert singer. She has worked together with many renowned conductors, including Lorin Maazel, Riccardo Chailly, Bernard Haitink, Franz Welser-Möst, Mariss Jansons, Zubin Mehta and Manfred Honeck. Lied recitals feature regularly in her calendar.

She was recently a guest at the Schubertiade Vilabertran, in Oxford, at the lied week in Schloss Elmau singing Wagner’s Wesendonck lieder and she also performed during the first concerts in the new Boulez Hall in Berlin, giving a recital accompanied by Wolfram Rieger.

Many of her CD recordings have won awards. Two recordings by Juliane Banse received an Echo Klassik: Braunfels’s Jeanne d’Arc with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Manfred Honeck (nominated ‘first world recording of the year’) and Mahler’s 8th Symphony with the Tonhalle Orchester Zurich under David Zinman. In February 2017 her first CD, Unanswered Love, was issued to great acclaim in the media. It contains in some cases the first recordings of works by Reimann, Rihm and Henze which she recorded with the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern and Christoph Poppen.

This season her first CD recorded with the Munich Radio Orchestra of works by Braunfels, Korngold, Marx and Pfitzner will be released.
