Ivan Kusnjer
Stage creations of the baritone Ivan Kusnjer have ranked among the highlights of the premier Czech opera house throughout the last three decades. Beyond that, he has been no less diligent in dedicating his gift of musicality and extraordinary promptitude
for studying new material coupled with a wealth of experience to concert hall audiences, and to the up-and-coming generation of young singers as a teacher at the Prague Academy of Music and Drama. His career has encompassed all of Europe's major music
centres, ranging from London, Paris and Berlin, to Brussels, Hamburg, Gothenburg, Reykjavik and Lisbon, to Madrid, Venice, Milan and Salzburg. Overseas, he has appeared in another three continents: in Canada and the United States, in Brazil, Israel, Hong
Kong and Japan.
Underlying Ivan Kusnjer's remarkable list of triumphs is not only his voice talent, but also his immaculate feeling for singing technique and impeccable preparation. He studied voice in the class of Professor Theodor Srubar at the Prague Academy of Music
and Drama, and subsequently furthered his schooling in Siena and Milan. After winning awards from the singing competitions in Karlovy Vary, Sofia, Geneva and Vercelli, he then, from the year 1977, proceeded to refine his operatic-stage skills in Ostrava,
and in Brno. Eventually, his joining the company of soloists at the National Theatre and then at the State Opera in Prague came as a natural outcome of his previous preparation, as well as an opportunity for the rapid launch of a formidable creative
trajectory.
Both on the operatic stage and on the concert platform, he has invariably fascinated listeners by his arching cantilena rendition, clear and cultured enunciation and faultless feeling for the poetic content of the sung text, compounded by a dazzling
assurance in the delivery of high registers. In concert halls, he has cultivated a song and cantata repertoire ranging from Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann and Brahms, to Mahler, Busoni, Prokofiev and Zemlinsky, to Bartok, Honegger and Orff. Moreover, he
has systematically championed music by Czech composers, including most notably Dvorak, Foerster, Janacek, Novak, Suk and Martinu, as well as contemporary works by Hanus, Slavicky, Kvech, Tichy and Bodorova.
A truly versatile singer though he may be, his mainstay has always been the operatic stage, where he has created a formidable gallery of roles in both the Czech and international repertoires. In the former, Ivan Kusnjer has been offered sterling
opportunities in the operas of Smetana (as Tausendmark, Vladislav, Krusina, Tomes, Master Mason, Radovan, or Vok), Dvorak (as Roderich, Bohus, Hunter, Gamekeeper, or Muezin), and Janacek (as Premysl, Lhotsky, Mill Foreman, Harasta, Forester, Kuligin,
Poet, Prus, Cekunov, Small Prisoner, Siskov, or Gorjancikov). He has to his credit dedicated creations in rarely performed operas, such as Mysliveceks Abramo ed Isacco, Skroup's The Sea Geus, Sebor's The Templars in Moravia, Rozkosny's The Rapids of Saint
John, Novak's Karlstejn, Pauer's Swan Song, and Eben's Jeremiah. Of his creations in the international repertoire, he has earned acclaim most notably as Mozarts Guglielmo, Almaviva and Papageno, and Rossinis Figaro. He has likewise excelled as Verdi's
Macbeth, Rigoletto, Germont, Luna, Renato, Posa, Carlos, Amonasro, Iago, and both Ford and Falstaff, as Leoncavallo's Tonio and Silvio, and as Puccinis Marcello, Scarpia and Michele. He has also performed the leading baritone parts in Saint-Saens' Samson
et Dalila, Wagner's Parsifal, Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier and Die schweigsame Frau, and in Ferrero' La conquista.
He has worked with many leading stage directors - a roster featuring prominently David Pountney and Robert Wilson - and conductors, including Mackerras, Albrecht, Baudo, Viotti, Harnoncourt, Luisi, Camberling, Gardiner, Neumann, Kosler, Pesek, Gregor,
Kout, Macal, Pinkas, Belohlavek and Netopil. Ivan Kusnjers extensive discography is dominated, along with song recitals (Dvorak, Foerster, Janacek, Eben), by complete opera sets of Dalibor, Vanda, Dimitrij, Rusalka, sarka, Osud, and The Excursions of Mr
Broucek; and complete radio recordings of Iphigenie en Tauride, Eugene Onegin, Armida, Mozart and Salieri, Betrothal in a Monastery, The Flames, Twelfth Night, and Copernicus. To date, he has been invited to feature in recording projects of Decca,
Deutsche Grammophon, Chandos, Orfeo, Naxos, Marco Polo, Panton, and Supraphon. Ivan Kusnjer's accounts of the international repertoire, however, have so far remained reposited in music archives.
In recognition of his outstanding achievements on stage, Ivan Kusnjer received the most prestigious Czech theatre distinction, Thalia Award, on three occasions: in 1994, for Prologue and Tonio in Leoncavallo's Pagliacci; in 1997, for the King in Peter
Maxwell Davies' Eight Songs for a Mad King; and in 2001, for Vok Vitkovic in Smetana's The Devils Wall. In 2001, he was awarded the European Gustav Mahler Prize, and in 2002 he was part of the creative team that won two Grammy award nominations for the
recording of Janacek's Sarka.
