Christian Immler Christian Immler was born in Munich and began his musical education as a treble in the Tölzer Knabenchor. He was given prominent operatic roles including the 2nd boy-part in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's The Magic Flute under leading conductors James Levine, Herbert von Karajan, Christoph von Dohnanyi, Riccardo Chailly and Wolfgang Sawallisch. As an alto he was recorded singing Bach-Cantatas BWV 168 & 174 under Nikolaus Harnoncourt as well as the Mass in B minor conducted by Andrew Parrott.

After obtaining a degree in architecture, Christian studied with Rudolf Piernay. He won the Schubert Prize at Guildhall School of Music & Drama in 1998 and the International Nadia et Lili Boulanger Competition in Paris in 2001. Christian has worked with such conductors as Philippe Herreweghe, William Christie, Daniel Harding, Andrew Parrott, Harry Christophers, Giovanni Antonini, Michel Corboz, Ottavio Dantone, Ivor Bolton and Concentus Musicus Wien and Maasaki Suzuki and Bach Collegium Japan, performing at places such as the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Salzburg and Lucerne Festivals and the BBC Proms.

On stage, he recently appeared in Unsuk Chinʼs Alice in Wonderland at Geneva Opera. He sang Seneca (Poppea) at the Boston Early Music Festival. He also performed at the Wiener Kammeroper, New Israeli Opera and Opéra Comique in Paris.

As a recitalist, Christian has a particular interest in 20th Century ʻEmigré Composersʼ. He has performed at Wigmore Hall and Kings Place in London and at the Frick Collection in New York. His latest CD Modern Times with pianist Helmut Deutsch has just been released to critical acclaim. Christian is Professor of Voice at the Conservatoire HEMU in Lausanne/Fribourg.
