„What a voice! She exposes a full-bodied, resonant voice with warmth and softness, however simultaneously remaining flexible, graceful and elegant. More seductive a voice cannot sound!” This is the enthusiastic characterization of the artist’s vocal performance as recently summarized by the music-magazine Cluster of the German radio network SWR. On stage of the prestigious Vienna Musikverein our mezzo-soprano from Switzerland is now joining the Concentus Musicus again, an ensembles she has always been holding dear, as having worked with the Concentus and his founder Nikolaus Harnoncourt frequently throughout many years. The great René Jacobs has been another long-time loyal musical partner with whom she recorded Mozart Requiem for the label Harmonia Mundi lately. Marie-Claude Chappuis also meets for musical teamwork regularly and happily with conductors such as Giovanni Antonini, Ivor Bolton, Riccardo Chailly, Emmanuelle Haïm, Sir Roger Norrington and Christophe Rousset a. o.
After having recently made her debut with the Teatro alla Scala (Schubert’s Fierrabras) and after performing at the Theater an der Wien (Rossini’s Guillaume Tell) Marie-Claude Chappuis is back again to Vienna on December 8 and 9, 2018. Together with the Concentus Musicus and its current music- director Stefan Gottfried she is performing a Bach-programme which can also be heard at the Brucknerhaus in Linz on December 10, 2018.
