Konstantin Wolff

The German bass-baritone Konstantin Wolff, who was born in 1978, studied with Donald Litaker in Karlsruhe and won the Mendelssohn Competition in 2004. He made his stage debut the following year with Monteverdi’s Poppea under the baton of William Christie. He works closely with René Jacobs, who engaged him for Mozart’s Magic Flute in Aix-en-Provence and for concert performances of Figaro, among others, and with Teodor Currentzis, for whose recording of Così fan tutte he was cast. Wolff was a dancing singer in Sasha Waltz’s production of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, which was seen in Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Baden-Baden, and Berlin. In the concert hall he has performed with such conductors as Abbado, Chailly, Gardiner, Harnoncourt, Koopman, Minkowski, and Rattle. Konstantin Wolff is also a dedicated lieder singer and has taken part in the world premieres of Marc-André Dalbavie’s Gesualdo in Zurich and Benoît Mernier’s Spring Awakening in Brussels.
