Nikolaus Fluck, born in Frankfurt am Main in 1990, was a member of the Limburger Domsingknaben (Limburg Cathedral Boys Choir) with which he first gained musical experience singing concerts in Germany and abroad. Adding to this experience was also his role as the Third Spirit in Mozart’s The Magic Flute at the Oper Köln. Following his time as a choirboy, he studied music education and trumpet at the State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart. He then went on to study vocal performance under Carmen Mammoser and Bernhard Jaeger-Böhm, Lieder under Cornelis Witthoefft in Stuttgart and to receive a master’s degree under Yves Sotin at the Conservatoire de Paris.
Nikolaus Fluck took part in masterclasses with Peter Kooij, Margreet Honig, Emma Kirkby, Brigitte Fassbaender, Robert Holl, Anne Le Bozec and Ulrike Hofbauer. He has also been greatly influenced by Stephan Genz, Jos van Veldhoven and Susan Manoff. Currently, he is under the tutelage of Charlotte Lehmann. The young baritone can be heard in Germany and abroad as a recitalist and concert singer in, for example, Händel’s Messiah and Judas Maccabaeus, the requiem settings by Brahms, Fauré and Duruflé, Rossini’s Petite Messe solennelle, Haydn’s Die Schöpfung (The Creation) and above all in Johann Sebastian Bach’s major works and cantatas.
In conjunction with a masterclass given by Dietrich Henschel, Nikolaus Fluck performed as part of Philippe Herreweghe’s festival program academia delle crete senesi in Asciano. This was followed by several performances at festivals in Portugal and France in the summer of 2018 where he sang the solo baritone in C.P.E. Bach’s oratorio Auferstehung und Himmelfahrt Jesu with Arsys Bourgogne (Mihaly Zeke) and the Ensemble Pulcinella (Ophélie Gaillard).
