Born in the Czech city of Brno, Magdalena Kožená is one of the most sought-after singers performing today. As celebrated for her performances in the opera house as in the concert hall, she an exclusive artist with Deutsche Grammophon since 1999 and has since been awarded multiple prizes for her albums including The Gramophone’s Solo Vocal Award, The Gramophone’s Artist of the Year, the Echo Klassik Prize, Record Academy Prize Tokyo, and the Diapason d’or. In 2017, Magdalena forged a long-term relationship with Dutch label Pentatone and her three recordings with the company include Il Giardino dei sospiri with harpsichordist Václav Luks and Collegium 1704; an intimate chamber music album Soirée; and her most recent release, Nostalgia, with the celebrated pianist Yefim Bronfman.

Renowned for her interpretations of Mozart, Schubert, Schumann and Beethoven, she has also illuminated the music of Berg, Schoenberg, Webern and Boulez for a new generation of listeners. She is an Honorary Fellow of Peterhouse, Cambridge, and her April 2024 recital is her eighth for Camerata Musica Cambridge.

Peterhouse Theatre



Peterhouse is the oldest of the constituent colleges in the University of Cambridge.  It was founded in 1284 by Hugo de Balsham, Bishop of Ely, on its current site close to the centre of the City.

The Peterhouse Theatre was built in 1883 to designs by one of the architectural masters of the Victorian era, Basil Champneys (1842-1935), whose other buildings include Newnham College and the Old Divinity School in Cambridge. Inspired by Palladio’s Teatro Olimpico at Vicenza (1580-85), the fine acoustics and intimate atmosphere of the Peterhouse Theatre make it the finest venue for chamber music in Cambridge, and one of the top three such venues in the whole country.
