Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Markus Matheis gained early performing experience as a boy treble soloist for the Oper Frankfurt and the Alte Oper Frankfurt. He subsequently studied voice with Carol Bruetting and Thomas Meyer, and performance style, particularly the performance of Lied, with Graham Johnson, Irwin Gage and Dalton Baldwin.
Markus’ theatre work stretches from conventional to experimental theatre productions – including Mozart’s “Don Giovanni”, Menotti’s “The Consul”, Sondheim’s “A Little Night Music” or the scenic realisation of Ligeti’s “Aventure”, as well as a series of world premieres, including collaborations with the Swiss Ensemble Phoenix and the ensemble für neue musik zürich.
Markus has an extensive repertoire of the oratorios of the Baroque and Romantic eras as well as of contemporary church music, having worked with Deutsche Radiophilharmonie, Mitteldeutsches Kammerorchester or Beethoven Orchester Bonn and performed in Australia, China and various countries all over Europe.
As often as possible, Markus focuses on Lied and Art Song, where his dedication to this intimate art form found recognition as a prize winner and finalist of international competitions. Currently Markus is looking forward to his return to Australia in August, where he will present three Lieder recitals including at the Melbourne Recital Centre and will be adjudicating Australia’s National Liederfest.
