Alice Lackner - Soprano
The young mezzosoprano Alice Lackner is internationally acclaimed as an opera, concert and song performer.
Alice Lackner studied with Prof. Kunz-Eisenlohr at the Musikhochschule Köln/Aachen until 2015 and worked with teachers such as Brigitte Fassbaender, Gerd Uecker, Robert Holl and Ulrich Eisenlohr. She received a scholarship from the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes and won prizes at the “Podium junger Gesangssolisten” competition in Essen (2015), the “cantatebach!” competition in Greifswald (2017) as well as the Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg (2019).
Alice Lackner worked as a soloist with orchestras such as the Rundfunksinfonieorchester Berlin, the Russian National Orchestra Kaliningrad, the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt (Oder), or the L’Orfeo Barockorchester. In June 2019, she gave her debut in the Berlin Philharmonie with Lili Boulanger’s “Psalm 130: Du fond de l’abîme”. In September 2019, she performed the “Stimme der Ungeborenen” in Richard Strauss’ “Die Frau ohne Schatten” at the Musikfest Berlin and the George-Enescu-Festival Bukarest, together with the Rundfunksinfonieorchester, the Rundfunkchor Berlin and Vladimir Jurowski.
Her core repertoire on the concert stage includes J.S. Bach’s cantatas and oratorios, Mozart’s Requiem and Mass in c-minor, Mendelssohn’s Eliah as well as Händel’s Messiah. Recent performances have also included lesser known concert repertoire such as Requiems by Duruflé or Suppè, the Membra Jesu Nostri (Buxtehude) or the Sieg des Glaubens (Ries).
As an opera singer, Alice Lackner recently performed the role of Nancy (Martha/Flotow) as a laureate of the Rheinsberg Kammeroper Festival. Furthermore, while still in her studies, she performed various soloist parts at the Theater Aachen, in operas such as Rusalka (Dvořak), Les Brigands (Offenbach) and Jenufa (Janaček).
Alice Lackner works on a regular basis with the pianist Imke Lichtwark in Berlin. Next to their standard repertoire of German romantic songs, they set their focus on foreign-language repertoire (such as Slavic or French) as well as contemporary music.
Futhermore, she recently founded the Berlin-based trio meZZZovoce, with which she explores repertoire for three mezzosoprano-voices from the renaissance up to contemporary music.
Alice Lackner holds a Master’s degree in sociology and is working as a research assistant at the ZOiS (Centre for East European and International Studies) Berlin .
