The young Viennese tenor Martin Piskorski gained his earliest musical experience as a violinist with Arkadi Vinokurov. He was an alto soloist with the Schubert Boys’ Choir in Vienna, undertaking many national and international concert tours with the ensemble, including visits to Japan, Germany and Italy. In 2001 he sang the Third Boy in Die Zauberflöte at the Salzburg Landestheater.
Since 2009 Martin Piskorski has been studying singing with Margit Klaushofer at Vienna’s University of Music and has already been heard in several roles, including the Preacher in Bernstein’s Mass with the Neue Oper in Vienna, the First Elder in Handel’s Susanna, Alfred in Strauß’s Die Fledermaus and Don Ottavio in Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the Schönbrunn Schlosstheater and Rinaldo in Haydn’s Armida at the Kvarner Festival in Croatia.
Since 2013 Martin Piskorski has been a scholarship-holder with the sic itur ad astra (siaa) foundation. During the summer of 2013 he was a member of the Salzburg Festival’s Young Singers Project, singing Tamino in Die Zauberflöte for Children and taking over from an ailing colleague as the Count of Lerma and a Royal Herald in Don Carlo under Antonio Pappano. In 2014 he is once again a member of the Young Singers Project and will be heard at the Salzburg Festival as Faninal’s Major-Domo (Der Rosenkavalier) and as Belmonte in Die Entführung aus dem Serail for Children.
