abrice Hayoz started his formal training as a singer with Marie-Françoise Schuwey at the Conservatory of Music in the Swiss town of Fribourg, continuing in the classes of Scot Weir at Zürich University of the Arts. While studying with Michel Brodard and Christoph Prégardien he accomplished additional studies under Malcolm King and in the Lied group of Hartmut Höll in Paris.
As a soloist he has sung in many places all over Europa as well as in Japan, performing a repertoire that reaches from Monteverdi to Frank Martin, not forgetting Bach (indeed, one of his favourites), Purcell, Händel, Haydn, Duruflé, Fauré, Mendelssohn and Rossini.
However he also loves the Lied repertoire and has given recitals with such cycles as “Die schöne Müllerin” by Schubert, “Die Dichterliebe” by Schumann or “La Bonne Chanson” by Fauré.
In 2009 he took part in the recording of “Sept Paroles du Christ sur la Croix” by César Franck (Mirare) with the Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne conducted by Michel Corboz. He also participates in the comprehensive recording of all of J. S . Bach’s vocal works by the Choir and Orchestra of the J.S. Bach Foundation directed by Rudolf Lutz. Among many other forthcoming events featuring Fabrice Hayoz are Mozart’s c-minor Mass and Requiem, Bach’s St. John’s Passion and his b-minor Mass.
