Stephan MacLeod is a conductor and bass-baritone. Born in Geneva, he is the founder and artistic director of Gli Angeli Genève, a vocal-instrumental ensemble that specialises in repertoire from the 16th to the 19th century on period instruments. He conducts between 40 and 50 concerts per year worldwide, a growing number of which as guest conductor with “modern” orchestras, particularly in the repertoire by J.S. Bach and his contemporaries. Simultaneously, he is also happily pursuing his singing career, and teaching singing at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausann. He studied the violin and the piano before turning to singing, which he first studied at the Conservatoire de Genève, then with Kurt Moll at the Cologne Musikhochschule and finally with Gary Magby at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne. His singing career began during his studies in Germany through a fruitful collaboration with Reinhard Goebel and Musica Antiqua Köln. It was then that the doors to the oratorio world opened to him. Since then, he has been singing on the most important stages around the world, under the direction of conductors such as Philippe Herreweghe, Jordi Savall, Frieder Bernius, Franz Brüggen, Masaaki Suzuki, Michel Corboz, Gustav Leonhardt, Christophe Coin, Konrad Junghänel, Hans-Christoph Rademann, Sigiswald Kuijken, Vaclav Luks, Philippe Pierlot, Helmut Rilling, Rudolf Lutz, Raphael Pichon, Paul Van Nevel or Jos Van Immerseel, as well as with Daniel Harding or Jesús López Cobos. He also sang in opera productions at La Monnaie in Brussels, Teatro La Fenice in Venice, Grand Théâtre de Genève, Opéra national de Toulouse, Opéra de Nîmes, Opéra national de Bordeaux, and Oper Köln. In 2019, he received an ICMA award with Gli Angeli Genève, in the category “best vocal baroque music recording of the year”, for the CD Sacred Music of the 17th century in Wroclaw.
