In 2021, Ekaterina Chayka-Rubinstein gave the premiere of new Liederwerkstatt compositions at Kissinger Sommer International Music Festival, accompanied by pianist Jan-Phillip Schulze. In September 2021, she will make her debut at Staatsoper Hannover and in 2022 she will make guest appearances at the Ravinia Festival in Chicago.
Born in Ukraine, the mezzo-soprano performed in several productions at Hanover Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien: Martinů’s Julietta, Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte and Offenbach’s La vie parisienne. In 2018, she sang Ino in Handel’s Semele there under the baton of Howard Arman and in January 2022 she will sing her first Cherubino in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro.
The German mezzo-soprano is a promising young talent with a dark voice, a wide vocal range and excellent coloratura technique. Her voice is perfect for baroque, Mozart and Rossini roles, while her stage presence and expressiveness has enabled her to conquer international concert stages with her song interpretation. So far she has performed with orchestras including Konzerthausorchester Berlin and under the baton of conductors such as Howard Arman and Julien Salemkour.
Since 2019, Ekaterina Chayka-Rubinstein and pianist Maria Yulin have performed as a Lied-Duo, winning awards at the Concours international chant-piano Nadia et Lili Boulanger in Paris in 2019 and at the 12th International Art Song Competition in Stuttgart in 2020. In August 2021, they performed together at the Hitzacker Sommerliche Musiktage and took part in a master class at the Schwarenberg Schubertiade. In October 2021, they will give a recital at Stuttgart Liedherbst.
