Jendrik Springer

Jendrik Springer was born in Göttingen, studied piano with Prof. Karl-Heinz Kömmerling and conducting with Prof. Lutz Köhler. Even during his studies, he began to build a large repertoire as a Lieder accompanist. As a pianist, he has won prizes at numerous competitions – one demonstration of his particular gift for sight-reading was his 1st prize in the 1995 Karl-Bergemann Sight-Reading Competition in Hannover. Today, Jendrik Springer is primarily active in two areas. First, he is regularly invited by several leading conductors to assist them with opera rehearsals, such as Christian Thielemann (most recently »Die Frau ohne Schatten« at the Wiener Staatsoper, »Ariadne auf Naxos« at the Semperoper, Dresden, »Lohengrin« and »Tristan und Isolde« at the Bayreuth Festival), Philippe Jordan (»The Mastersingers of Nuremberg«, »Don Carlos« at the Opéra National de Paris), Sir Simon Rattle (»Parsifal« at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, »The Ring of the Nibelungs« at the Wiener Staatsoper), Kirill Petrenko, Franz Welser-Möst and Yannick Nézet-Séguin. From September 2020 he will be the musical assistant to the musical director at the Wiener Staatsoper. On the other side, Jendrik Springer is in demand as a chamber music pianist (including with violinist Janine Jansen), but particularly as a Lieder accompanist. He has regularly performed with singers such as Marlis Petersen, Janina Baechle, Ricarda Merbeth and Adrian Eröd, including at the Wiener Konzerthaus, Salzburg Festival, Wigmore Hall, London, Tonhalle, Zurich, New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Munich Opera Festival and in Tokyo (where for example he accompanied Klaus Florian Vogt in Schubert’s »Die Schöne Müllerin«). Last year he made his debut in the Wiener Musikverein’s Brahms Saal with Krassimira Stoyanova, who he has worked with for years. He gave a demonstration of his well-known versatility in summer 2019 at a festival concert in Bayreuth’s Margravial Opera House in which he appeared as the soloist with Liszt’s Wagner transcriptions, as the accompanist to Camilla Nylund, and as the conductor of Mahler’s »Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen« with Daniel Schmutzhard and members of the Bayreuth Festival orchestra. He recently appeared on TV in an ORFIII live broadcast from the Grosser Sendesaal at the RadioKulturhaus, in which among other pieces he accompanied Anna Netrebko and Valentina Nafornita in Rachmaninov songs. He recorded a CD of Goethe Lieder, »Das Ewig-Weibliche«, for hamonia mundi, which appeared in 2012 and was awarded the Diapason d’Or and the Deutsche Schallplattenkritik prize; recently, the album Songs of the Night with baritone Christian Miede was issued by Capriccio in March.
