The Austrian mezzo-soprano completed her master's degree in singing in 2016 and the master's degree in concert singing in 2019 with honors from the University of Art for Music and Performing Arts in Graz. As a graduate, Klaudia received an award for outstanding achievements from the University of Art, 2019.
The singer is passionate about Art Song. Together with the pianist Gisela Jöbstl she won the 3rd prize at the 11. International Song Art Competition in Stuttgart 2018 as well as the III. International Schubert Competition.
Song recitals take the young mezzo-soprano across Europe. Klaudia Tandl made her debut in January 2020 at the Schubertiada in Barcelona, together with the German pianist Eric Schneider. She received important impulses in numerous master classes, including as a scholarship holder at the Franz Schubert Institut in Baden near Vienna, or the Oxford Liederfestival, from well-known artists such as Elly Ameling, Robert Holl, Ann Murray, Angelika Luz, Birgid Steinberger, Brigitte Fassbänder, Christa Ludwig, Olaf Bär, Andreas Schmidt, Wolfram Rieger, Helmut Deutsch, Julius Drake and Roger Vignoles.
Cooperation with well-known ensembles such as the ensemble plus from Vorarlberg or the Kontrapunkte from Vienna mark another focus in the singer's oeuvre: contemporary music. In April 2019 Klaudia Tandl had her debut at the Musikverein, Vienna with the Ensemble Kontrapunkte under the direction of Peter Keuschnig. Another collaboration will take place in the upcoming season. Further more the mezzo-soprano will give a concert with the ensemble zeitfluss at the prestigious contemporary music festival musikprotokoll in Graz in October 2021.
In January 2018, a CD of the ORF Zeit-Ton-Edition was released with a portrait of the composer Christoph Renhart, presenting the composers award-winning song cycle Farben des Mohns. 2021 Klaudia Tandl released her first solo Album - Schubert´s Women - together with the Irish pianist and conductor Niall Kinsella and the Austrian actress Gabriele Jacoby, at the international label Gramola.
Klaudia Tandl has a beautiful, rich sound and an elegant, untroubled
delivery; Kinsella is a meticulous collaborator … this is polished
music-making of fine repertoire" (Kritic on the CD SChubert´s Women)

..."Ein tolles Komödiantenduo gab Jan Koetsier's scheinnaive, hintergründig tonale Vertonung einiger Galgenlieder von Christian Morgenstern zum Besten. Vor der weich hinterherwankenden Tube Dominik Brandner's bestach Klaudia Tandl's Stimme durch schöne Textdeutlichkeit, Flexibilität und darstellerischen Witz."
