Anna Lucia Richter

Soprano Anna Lucia Richter specializes in lieder and choral works, and she has won acclaim in both fields. She has also appeared in major operatic roles. Richter was born in Cologne in 1990 and grew up in a musical family. She began to study singing with her mother when she was nine and won a place in the Cologne Cathedral girls' choir. Richter studied with Klesie Kelly-Moog at the Musikhochschule Cologne and with Kurt Widmer in Basel, Switzerland, and she soon began to rack up major international awards. In 2016, she won the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, one of the most prestigious fellowships available to young musicians. By that time, she was already a veteran recording artist, having made her debut in 2010 on a recording of Schumann's Der Rose Pilgerfahrt, Op. 112, and going on to record for Naxos and Challenge Classics. Richter was also trained by Christoph Prégardien and Edda Moser, among others. Richter has performed in concert under several of the world's top conductors, including Bernard Haitink (with the London Symphony Orchestra and, in 2017, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, in Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn), Riccardo Chailly (with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra), Paavo Järvi (with the hr-Sinfonieorchester), and Thomas Hengelbrock (with the Orchestre de Paris and the NDR Elbphilharmonie). She has sung Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125, repeatedly with the Freiburger Barockorchester. As a lieder singer, Richter has given recitals at major venues such as the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, the Rheingau Music Festival, and Carnegie Hall in New York, among many others. In the late 2010s, she branched out into opera, with appearances as Servilia in Mozart's La clemenza di Tito under pathbreaking Mozart conductor Theodor Currentzis and his Musica Aeterna Orchestra and in Hans Werner Henze's Elegy for Young Lovers. Richter has recorded for the Carus, Naxos, and Challenge Classics labels, among others. In 2019, she issued the Schubert recital Heimweh on PentaTone Classics, and she appeared on the recording of Haydn's Die Schöpfung in the Alpha label's Haydn 2032 series. Richter's 2021 recordings covered composers as diverse as Mahler and Monteverdi, and the following year, switching to a mezzo-soprano range, she issued an album of Brahms songs on PentaTone Classics, backed by pianist Ammiel Bushakevitz.
