Baritone Andrè Schuen comes from the Ladin area of La Val of South Tyrol in Italy and grew up speaking three languages (Ladin, Italian and German), a versatility reflected in his current vocal repertoire. Although the cello was his chosen instrument for many years, he decided to attend the Mozarteum University in Salzburg, studying singing under Professor Horiana Branisteanu, and song and oratorio under Professor Wolfgang Holzmair. Andrè Schuen rounded off his education attending master classes held by Kurt Widmer, Sir Thomas Allen, Kammersängerin Brigitte Fassbaender, Romualdo Savastano and Olaf Bär. He graduated from the Mozarteum in 2010 with distinction.

Andrè Schuen starts and also ends the 2018/2019 season with Schubert lied recitals, the Schöne Müllerin and Schwanengesang, at one of the most important lied places worldwide, the Schubertiade in Austria where he has already been highly acclaimed. Further recitals take him to Schubertiade Vilabertran, Munich, Philharmonie de Paris and Madrid. On the opera stage he is featuring Papageno at New National Theatre Opera in Tokio in September. In May he makes his debut as Olivier in a new production by Christof Loy in Strauss’ Capriccio at the Teatro Real in Madrid. With the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra he goes on an Asian tour with concerts in Shanghai and Seoul singing in his prime role as Don Giovanni.

On the concert stage Andrè Schuen can be heard this season with Boston Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, followed by the same repertory with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and Philippe Jordan: A tour with the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées and Philippe Herreweghe takes him a. o. to Brussels, Poitiers and Essen.
