BIOGRAPHY

Anna Korondi was born in Budapest. She started her vocal studies in Budapest and continued with Magarethe Bence at the conservatory Vienna, where she graduated with distinction in 1993.
Winning the renowned ARD music-competition in 1996, launched her international career.

Subsequent to her studies she worked as a member of the ensemble at the Komische Oper Berlin (1993 - 1997), followed by an engagement at the Bonn Opera (1997 - 1999), where she sang all the important roles of the lyric repertoire.

In 2000 she made her internationally acclaimed debut at the Bayerische Staatsoper where she stared in the title-role of Bernarda Albas Haus, a world premiere by Aribert Reimann (conductor: Zubin Metha/ director Harry Kupfer). At the Salzburg Festival 2001 she made her debut as Adele in a new production of Die Fledermaus (conductor: Marc Minkowski / director: Hans Neuenfels).

Today the versatile soprano, whose varied repertoire ranges from baroque to modern, regularly appears as a guest with the major European orchestras and festivals and works with conductors such as Howard Arman, Frans Brüggen, Adam Fischer, Enoch zu Guttenberg, Philippe Herreweghe, Yakov Kreizberg, Erwin Ortner, Eliahu Inbal, Marcello Viotti, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Helmuth Rilling.

Anna Korondi is also in great demand as a Lied-singer. Her performances, for example at the Kissinger Sommer and in cities like Rome, Florence or Torino are proof of her intimate knowledge of the German art song.

Recent projects led her to the Komische Oper Berlin, she embarked in a tour to Hong Kong to perform in Lustige Witwe, in 2004 she debuted as Sophie in Rosenkavalier and also appeared for the first time on the stage of Bayreuther Festspiele as a Blumenmädchen in Parsifal.

Current projects include a series of R. Strauss’ Arabella at the Bayerische Staatsoper where is heard as Zdenka, concerts with the Royal Philharmonic of Flanders under the baton of Philippe Herreweghe, the MDR Sinfonieorchester Leipzig (Howard Arman), the Turku Philharmonic Orchestra again under Maestro Howard Arman and various international appearances in cooperation with Enoch zu Guttenberg. In summer 2006 she will also return to the Bayreuther Festspiele.

Numerous radio, television and CD productions (TELDEC, CARLTON CLASSICS, FARAO) document her career. Recently she appeared on recordings of Missa solemnis von Franz Schubert (RIAS Kammerchor / Philippe Herreweghe) and Bach’s St. Matthew’s Passion (Chorgemeinschaft Neubeuern / Enoch zu Guttenberg)
