Nathalie Stutzmann is considered one of the most outstanding musical personalities of our time. Proclaimed “the best contralto in the world“(BR Klassik), Nathalie has spent her career performing with the world’s greatest conductors and orchestras.
Particularly acclaimed for her performances of Mahler, Brahms and Schubert, she is also a highly-praised recitalist. Nathalie has performed more than 300 recitals with Swedish pianist Inger Södergren, with whom she has also recorded several song cycles by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Poulenc and Chausson, among others. Recitals in recent seasons include performances at Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Stockholm Concert Hall, Salle Garnier Monte Carlo, St George’s Hall Liverpool, La Monnaie in Brussels, Gulbenkian Foundation Lisbon, and a Japan tour to celebrate the re-release by Warner/Erato of their earlier recording of the three Schubert song cycles.
Parallel to her concerts as a singer, she devotes most of her singing season to her own chamber orchestra Orfeo 55, created in 2009 and resident at Opéra Orchestre National Montpellier. Nathalie regularly records with Orfeo 55 and is currently an exclusive recording artist of Warner Classics/Erato as a singer and conductor. Recent recordings include Italian arias with “Quella Fiamma”, for which she was praised by Gramophone as being “one of the great baroque singers of our day”, as well as “Heroes from the Shadows” (Handel) awarded of a Diapason d’Or, “Une Cantate Imaginaire” (Bach), and “Prima Donna” (Vivaldi), all with Orfeo 55. This season they will perform at Philharmonie de Paris, Montpellier Opera, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and Meldorf Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival.
