Born in Munich, Christina Landshamer studied at the city’s Academy of Music and Drama under Angelica Vogel, and subsequently in Konrad Richter’s recital class and Dunja Vejzović’s soloist class at the State University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart. She is now a versatile and internationally highly sought-after concert, opera and recital singer. Her work with conductors such as Daniel Harding, Kent Nagano, Sir Roger Norrington, Stéphane Denève, Christian Thielemann and Ricardo Chailly has taken her to Europe’s most distinguished orchestras, including the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Munich Philharmonic, the SWR Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Freiburg’s Baroque Orchestra, Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra and the Orchestre de Paris, and even to North America with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Philharmonic and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.

Last season Christina Landshamer made her American debut at the Lyric Opera of Chicago as Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier, followed by concerts in New York with the Ensemble Midtvest at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. This season she will also be giving frequent guest performances in the US, for example, with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra under Manfred Honeck she is performing Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony (Symphony No. 2) which will also be recorded for issue on CD. Following this, she will then appear twice with the New York Philharmonic under Alan Gilbert, in Handel’s Messiah and in Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, for the latter of which she will accompany the orchestra on a European tour to Essen, Budapest, Vienna, London, Hamburg and Copenhagen. Christina Landshamer can also be heard with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra conducted by Thomas Hengelbrock in Haydn’s Creation as part of the Elbphilharmonie’s opening festival, with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin in Mozart’s Requiem under Vladimir Jurowski, on tour with the Orchestre des Champs Elysées under Philippe Herreweghe in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, in Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang under Pablo Heras-Casado for her first appearance at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, and once again with the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester under Herbert Blomstedt in Bach’s Mass in B minor and in Haydn’s The Seasons, this time with Trevor Pinnock on the rostrum.
