With her clear, graceful and nevertheless strongly expressive voice, the soprano Heidi Maria Taubert devotes herself primarily to renaissance and baroque music. Of particular importance to her are stylistic precision and fidelity to the sung text.
Raised in Dresden, she received her first musical instruction in the girls’ choir at the conservatory in her hometown. This was followed by her studies in voice and baroque music in Dresden and Leipzig, most significantly with Marek Rzepka. She has been strongly influenced by master classes with Emma Kirkby, Monika Mauch and Richard Wistreich as well as by her complementary studies in musicology and choral conducting.
Heidi Maria Taubert is now a sought-after soloist and a highly-regarded ensemble singer. Invitations to festivals such as the Dresden Music Festival, the Heinrich Schütz Musikfest, the Handel Festival in Halle, the Bachtage Potsdam, the Leipzig Bach Festival, Festival Mitte Europa, the Trigonale in Klagenfurt, the St.Wenceslas Music Festival in Ostrava, and the MITO SettembreMusica attest to this. Collaborations with ensembles such as amarcord, Lautten Compagney Berlin, Exxential Bach, Cappella Sagittariana Dresden, Instrumenta Musica, Collegium Marianum from Prague, Batzdorfer Hofkapelle, Johann Rosenmüller Ensemble, Arte dei suonatori and with conductors such as Wolfgang Katschner, Gregor Meyer, Jana Semerádová, Matthias Jung, Ludger Remy (†), Matthias Grünert, Gotthold Schwarz, Roderich Kreile and Peter Kopp as well as her church music performances with various choirs and orchestras have taken her throughout Germany and to several other European countries.
Numerous radio and CD recordings document her artistic work. With her ensemble Opella Musica, Heidi Maria Taubert is also involved in recording all of Johann Kuhnaus’ sacred vocal music.
