Martina Janková

Swiss soprano Martina Janková has sung in opera houses and with orchestras across Europe, and is acclaimed among the leading Mozart performers today.  She began her musical training in the Czech Republic, and was later a prizewinner at Germany’s Neue Stimmen International Singing Competition.  She first worked with Franz Welser-Möst at the International Opera Studio in Zurich, and has been a leading member of the Zurich Opera since 1998.  Ms. Janková’s current season features performances of Schubert at Vienna’s Konzerthaus and of Mahler at the Musikverein, as well as singing Clorinda in Rossini’s La Cenerentola in Zurich with Cecilia Bartoli in the title role.  A regular guest at the Salzburg Festival, she has also sung at festivals in Geneva, Graz, Lucerne, and Vienna, and at the Janáček Spring Festival.   Her discography includes several solo albums, as well as DVDs of Johann Strauss Jr.’s Simplicius for EMI with Welser-Möst conducting, along with Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, Cosě fan tutte, and Don Giovanni.  Martina Janková made her Cleveland Orchestra debut in 2009, and has returned regularly since that time, most recently in May 2019.  For more information, visit
