Philippe Huttenlocher (Bass)

Born: November 29, 1942 - Neuchâtel, Switzerland

The Swiss bass, Philippe Huttenlocher, studied first violin playing and received his diploma in 1963 at the Consevatory of Neuchâtel. He then trained his voice with Juliette Bise in Fribourg. In 1972 he won an international singing competition in Bratislava.

Philippe Huttenlocher became first a soloist in the Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne, then he had also artistic co-operation with the Choeurs de la Fondation Gulbenkian in Lisbon. With these two vocal ensembles he made his first recordings, whereby he was characterised particularly as a Bach interpreter. He had great international successes at the Festivals of Montreux, Lausanne and Strasbourg, at Bachwoche Ansbach (1975, 1977), at the Festival Weeks of Flanders and at the Festival de la Wallonie. In 1974 he undertook a tour in Japan, and 1978 found him partipating in the London Bach Festival. Finally he turned also to the opera singing and had his first big success in this area at the opera house of Zurich as a title role in Monteverdiís Orfeo (1975). He made very successful appearances at the State Operas of Vienna, Berlin, Hamburg, at Milanís La Scala, and at the Edinburgh Festival. In 1987 he made guest appearance in Genova in Dido and Aeneas by Purcell and in Les malheurs d'Orphée by Darius Milhaud. At the same he continued his career as one the most important concert and above all oratorio singer of his generation. He is married with the soprano Danielle Borst (born 1946).
