Vita Johannes Klüser

Johannes Klüser (tenor), born in Wissen (Sieg), Germany, has performed extensively in Germany and abroad, parallel to his dual studies in church music (A level, Cologne) as well as voice with a final performing arts diploma (künstlerischer Abschluss) in Düsseldorf and concert examination (Konzertexamen) in Rostock, both with distinction. He has acquired a wide repertoire embracing oratorio, opera and Lieder (Schubert, Schumann, Wolf, etc.). To round off his musical training he attended master classes with Scot Weir, Mitsuko Shirai and Hartmut Höll, and Christoph Pregardien. He has also participated in the International Bach Academy Stuttgart (Helmuth Rilling, Masaaki Suzuki).

Guest appearances in 1998 included the role of Lucano in Monteverdi's L'Incoronazione di Poppea at the Chamber Opera Festival at Schloss Rheinsberg. In 1999 he joined the ensemble of the Theater Vorpommern (Stralsund & Greifswald) where he sang the roles of Beppo in Leoncavallo's I Pagliacci, Flaut in Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream und Mozart in Rimski-Korsakow's Mozart and Salieri. Since 2003 Johannes Klüser has lived in Cologne as a freelance singer, focusing mainly on concert and oratorio work. Guest engagements have taken him to the Ostseefestspiele as Chateauneuf in Lortzing's Zar und Zimmermann, to the Greifswalder Bachwoche, the Heinrich Schütz Festival, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festivals, the first Bach Festival in Seoul, and to the Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall, with the Bach Collegium Japan under its musical director Masaaki Suzuki. A CD recording of Charles Gounod's St Cecilia Mass with the Regensburg Domspatzen Choir has recently been released on the "querstand" label (Verlag Klaus-Jürgen Kamprad, D-04600 Altenburg).
