Elisabeth von Magnus Biography (Wikipedia)

Elisabeth von Magnus (née Countess Elisabeth Juliana de la Fontaine und d'Harnoncourt-Unverzagt; born 29 May 1954 in Vienna) is an Austrian classical mezzo-soprano. The daughter of conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt and violinist Alice Harnoncourt, her professional name comes from her first marriage to Ernst-Jürgen von Magnus. She studied recorder in Vienna, theater at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and voice with Hertha Töpper at the Conservatory of Munich. Her other teachers have included Paul Schilhawsky. Early in her career, she performed as a recorder soloist with the Concentus Musicus Wien. She has also worked for ORF as a presenter and announcer.

von Magnus appeared at the Salzburg Festival first in 1993 in Mozart's Great Mass in C minor as well as in L'incoronazione di Poppea and Vespro della Beata Vergine 1610 of Monteverdi. She took part in several projects with Nikolaus Harnoncourt, such as a production of Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro staged by Jürgen Flimm in Amsterdam. Her US debut in 1991 was in Bach’s St Matthew Passion with the Los Angeles Philharmonic conducted by Peter Schreier.
