Prof. Therese Lindquist

Thérèse Lindquist studied piano and chamber music in her home country Sweden and continued her studies of lied with Dorothy Irving and Paul Schilhawsky. As a piano accompanist for lied recitals she has been awarded several prizes (including first prize at the Jenny Lind Competition) and has participated in several master-classes, for instance with Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Sena Jurinac, Helena Lazarska, Robert Holl and Silvia McNair.  Thérèse Lindquist has been official piano accompanist in international competitions such as the Robert Schumann Competition and the International Mozart Competition in Salzburg. She has given concerts together with renowned artists such as  Christian Altenburger, Camilla Nylund, Christiane Karg and Wolfgang  Holzmair at international festivals such as the Heidelberg Spring, the Carinthian Summer, Allegro Vivo, Musik vid Siljan and the Florida Festival of Fine Arts.  In cooperation with countertenor Paul Esswood she made an intensive study of the performance practice of Early Music. Thérèse Lindquist is professor of lied and oratorio at the University Mozarteum Salzburg in Salzburg and also much in demand as director of master-classes in Europe, Japan, Korea and the USA. The National Association of Teachers of Singing has frequently invited her to give lectures and hold master-classes at various universities in the USA (Florida International University, Columbus State University etc.). Her award-winning CD recording of songs by Josephine Lang with Dana McKay, soprano,  (Deutsche Schallplatten ) was highly acclaimed in Dieter Kühn’s biography of Clara  Schumann as a “miniature masterpiece”. Thérèse Lindquist accompanied Wolfgang Holzmair on a CD recording of songs by Anton Webern, entitled Webern pur (Institute of New Music in Salzburg), as well as on a recording of Kowalski songs (Bridge Records) and Wunderhorn songs (on the Col legno label).
