TOBIAS WICKY, BARITONE



Tobias Wicky received his earliest musical training in the Basel Boys Choir, before going on to study with Marcel Boone at the Basel Academy of Music. Alongside his studies with Boone he also developed his knowledge of historical performance practice with Rosa Dominguez at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.

The young baritone leads an intensely active concert life. His particular interests lie in the fields of Lieder and oratorio. His repertoire includes works ranging from the Early Baroque to the modern period, with a focus on Early Music. He also places importance on cultivating ensemble singing, with which he has been involved since childhood. The young baritone is a member of several professional vocal ensembles such as the Ensemble Orlando Fribourg, the Collegium Vocale Gent and the J.S. Bach Foundation St. Gallen, with whom he regularly appears as soloist.

In 2012 he founded the ensemble Voces Suaves, who have given important concerts at leading festivals throughout Europe (Ambronay Festival, Festival de Saintes, Forum alte Musik Zurich, Monteverdi Festival Cremona, Seviqc BreĹžice Festival Slovenia, MA Festival Bruges, Music Festival Potsdam Sanssouci, Innsbruck Festival of Early Music, Berlin State Opera etc.) His various CD recordings have received several international prizes (including the Diapason découverte award).
