Isabell Großmann  Mezzosopran

 Isabell Großmann was born in Landau/Pfalz (Germany) and  grew up in Höhr-Grenzhausen. At the age of 12, she began playing the viola with Dorothea Buchwald and Andreas Sokol. She was member of the  National and State Youth Orchestras, simultaneously taking singing lessons with Christiana Jordan. After graduating from school  she decided to study music. She began viola studies with Almut Steinhausen, and Prof.  Lindemann as well as voice studies with Prof. Alexander Steveson at the Musikhochschule Detmold in Münstere and the Musikakademie Kassel. After graduating, she continued  her studies with Nurit Herzog Gorén, Petra Schmidt and Paul Wiederin. She attended master classes with Professor Hartmut Lindemann, Professor Diericks (viola) and with Bernd Weikel (voice). In 1998, she was awarded the Perédur award (Förderpreis der Stiftung Peredur) in the categories of singing and viola as well as a scholarship by the Richard Wagner foundation .  She performed in the  Bad Arolsen baroque festival in 2005 as well as for the  "Mittelhessischen Kultursummer" a year later. The mezzo-soprano performed regularly with orchestras,  expanding  her broad  repertoire with numerous concerts that led her to Lybia in 2007.  In the same year,  she finished her first solo-CD with works by Strauss, Brahms, Mozart, Verdi and Bizet. The second CD followed only months later with "Kindertotenliedern" by Gustav Mahler and compositions by Brahms, Strauss and Martin.
