Annette Kleine (Contralto)

Born: Germany

The German contralto, Annette Kleine, studied in Detmold and Düsseldorf with Theo Lindenbaum and Brigitte Dürrler. She received important artistic encouragement after her concert exam, in master-classes with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and others, and from constant singing support by Barbara Schlick.

Annette Kleine's unique voice and stylistic conveying ability, as well as the intensity of her expression qualify her in special way for the piano-Lieder and for different genres from Baroque oratorios and operas up to vocal chamber music with interactive computer technology. She has appeared many European music centres with numerous orchestras and choirs, among them the Das Neue Orchester Köln (Christoph Spering) and the Rheinische Kantorei (Hermann Max), the Baroque ensemble A Capriccio Maastricht, the ensemble WireWorks as well as her piano partners Ulrich Rademacher and Clemens Rave. Excellent criticisms, competition successes, CD and radio recordings, as well as an ARD-Fernsehportrait document the career of the singer.

Since 1992 Annette Kleine teaches singing at the WWU Münster, and since 1998 at the college of Musikhochschule in Enschede (Holland).
