La reina de Vilabertran. L'any 2018, Konradi va debutar a Vilabertran i va enamorar al públic, i l'idil·li continua. Els qui han presenciat les seves cinc actuacions al nostre festival admiren la perfecció del seu cant natural, la seva sofisticació, la seva elegància i el timbre exquisit, qualitats que li han valgut el títol de reina de Vilabertran.

Katharina Konradi

Katharina Konradi was born in Bischkek, Kyrgyzstan, and is the first soprano from this country to have an international career as a lied, concert and opera singer. She made her debut as Ännchen (Der Freischütz) at the Hamburg State Opera in 2018 and has since been a member of the regular ensemble there. She has also sung, for instance, at the Semperoper in Dresden (2018/19) as Zdenka (Arabella), at the Bayreuth Festival (2019 and 2021) as the young shepherd (Tannhäuser), and at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich (2020/2021 and 2021/2022) as Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier) and Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro). She regularly gives recitals at the Schubertíada, the Schubertiade in Hohenems/Schwarzenberg and in the Wigmore Hall in London. She has given recitals at the Philharmonie in Cologne and in the Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin.

Ammiel Bushakevitz
Ammiel Bushakevitz

Born in Jerusalem, he began playing piano at the age of four. Developing an early love for the art song, Ammiel is internationally recognised as a leading song pianist of his generation and performs regularly at notable venues across Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and Australia. After initial studies in South Africa, where he raised, he furthered his studies at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater “Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy” in Leipzig and at the Conservatoire Nationale Supérieur de Musique in Paris. Ammiel is a prize-winner at numerous competitions, including the Wigmore Hall Competition in London or the International Schubert Competition in Stuttgart. One of the last private students of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, he mentors regularly at Thomas Hampson’s Heidelberg Lied Academy. In addition to his activities as a pianist, Ammiel is also active as a musicologist and specializes in research on Schubert and Wagner.
