BiographyThe Swiss soprano trained at the Conservatory Feldkirch as well as at the universities in Zurich, Tel Aviv (T. Rachum), and Basel (K. Widmer) and was, among other things, awarded by the Eliette von Karajan Cultural Foundation (Karajan Prize 2003). In 1999, Letizia Scherrer made her debut at the Salzburg Festival under the baton of Jordi Savall and at Carnegie Hall New York under Helmuth Rilling. By now, the versatile soprano, whose extensive repertoire spans from Baroque to Modern, can already look back at impressive concert projects in many countries of Europe, South America, and in the USA. She worked with conductors such as Michel Corboz, Marcus Creed, Manfred Honeck, Gérard Korsten, Roger Norrington, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Philippe Herreweghe, Kirill Petrenko, Mario Venzago, Jörg-Peter Weigle, and Hans-Christoph Rademann. While doing so, she performed regularly with ensembles such as the Collegium Vocale Ghent and the Chapelle Royale, Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, Orchestra and Choir of the BR, RIAS Kammerchor, the Akademie für Alte Musik, Dresden Kreuzchor, Gulbenkian Orquestra, Internationale Bachakademie, and the Radiosinfonieorchester of SWR Stuttgart.
In the season 2017/18 Letizia Scherrer will, among other things, be singing the soprano part in Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem in Brixen and Bruneck with the Streicherakademie Bozen and the Choir of Collegium Musicum Bruneck, as well as in Mozart’s Requiem and J.S. Bach’s Magnificat in D major in Moscow under the baton of Helmuth Rilling.
