Juliane Banse

Univ.-Prof.in for Solo VoiceDepartment Vocal Studies
The German soprano Juliane Banse, who grew up in Zurich, first took lessons with Paul Steiner, later with Ruth Rohner at the Zurich Opera House, and then completed her studies with Brigitte Fassbaender and Daphne Evangelatos in Munich. Since then she has toured the world on opera and concert stages, mostly in collaboration with the famous conductors of our time, such as Riccardo Chailly, Bernard Haitink, Franz Welser-Möst, Marin Alsop, Zubin Mehta and Manfred Honeck, among others.
But chamber music and song recitals also play an important role in her calendar. In the meantime, she is also passing on her knowledge to the younger generation: After five years at the Robert Schumann University in Düsseldorf, she has been teaching as a professor at the Mozarteum University since 2020, and she also leads international master classes. She is a sought-after jury member at competitions at home and abroad.
