In August 2014 young Swiss tenor Mauro Peter gave a highly acclaimed Lieder recital at the famous Schubert festival 'Schubertiade' in Schwarzenberg, Austria. On the program: famous Schubert songs on poems by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Such was the success, that Swiss radio DRS2 Kultur immediately took the decision to record this unique recital and asked Sony Classical to participate in a co-production of the album.

Born in Lucerne, Switzerland, Mauro Peter received his musical training with the Luzerner Singknaben, at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München with Fenna Kügel-Seifried, and in Helmut Deutsch's Lied class. In 2012 the young tenor was the winner of the Peter Schumann Competition in Zwickau, where he was awarded the 1st Prize and the Audience prize. From the 2013/14 season, he was a member of the Zürich Opera House, where his debuts as Ferrando in 'Cosi fan Tutte' and Don Ottavio in 'Don Giovanni', both in a concert version at the Theater an der Wien under Nikolaus Harnoncourt in spring 2014, were a tremendous success.

Helmut Deutsch is one of the most sought-after pianists for chamber music and vocal accompaniment. He studied piano, composition and musicology at the Vienna Music Academy, where he was awarded the Vienna Composition Prize. His collaborators have included Irmgard Seefried, Rita Streich, Ileana Cotrubas, Hermann Prey, Hans Hotter, Olaf Bär, Anne-Sofie von Otter, Josef Protschka, Peter Schreier, Bernd Weikl, Brigitte Fassbaender, Keith Lewis, Boje Skovhus, Barbara Bonney and Jonas Kaufmann. Deutsch is a professor at the Hochschule für Musik in Munich.
