The German soprano Sophie Klußmann, a student of Thomas Quasthoff and Margreet Honig, has a warm, wide-ranging and dark-hued voice; though lyric in nature, it has dramatic potential and can assert itself without strain against a large orchestra. Rapidly building an international reputation as an operatic and concert performer in a diversity of styles and repertoire, Sophie has sung the major roles of her genres at the Halle Opera in Germany, was 'Pamina' at Berlin's Seefestspiele and covered 'Anna Netrebko' as 'Donna Anna' at the Baden-Baden Opera Festival. The composers Christian Jost and Edward Rushton have written operatic roles for her and she took the female lead opposite John Malkovich in his theatre piece The Giacomo Variations. In concert, she has collaborated with conductors like Marek Janowski, Ingo Metzmacher, Helmuth Rilling, Michael Sanderling and Karl-Heinz Steffens in works by Beethoven, Brahms und Mahler, and with leading figures in the field of historically informed performance such as Marcus Creed, Václav Luks and Martin Haselböck. In the chamber and song repertoire, she has a particular passion for music from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
