In July 2017, he presented the title role in Oberon in a production of the Bavarian State Opera for the Munich Opera Festival.

Concert

Pregardien's repertoire in the concert area includes mainly passions, oratorios and fairs of baroque, classical and romantic. He regularly collaborates with internationally leading ensembles and conductors of historical performance practice.

In 2005 he sang for the first time with Philippe Pierlot and his Baroque ensemble Ricercar Consort. In 2006 he performed bach cantatas at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam.

In the spring of 2006 he worked for Carus-Verlag in the first recording of Michael Haydn's Requiem in C minor; this recording was awarded the MIDEM Classical Award in 2007. In autumn 2007, Pregardien took part in a live recording of Dietrich Buxtehude's Passion cycle Membra Jesu nostri (K 617), together with the ensemble La Chapelle Rhenane. Also available on CD are Der Rose Pilgrimage by Robert Schumann (also published by Carus- Verlag), works by Padre Martini (ars musici), works by Joseph Martin Kraus and Georg Philipp Telemann (both cpo) and the St. John Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach (Zig Zag Territoires).

His other concert repertoire includes the tenor parts in Die Saisonen (2009, Cologne Philharmonic), in Die Schopfung (2009, with the Orchestre de Chambre de Geneve), the Evangelist in the St. Matthew Passion (2009, Paris) and the tenor arias in the St Matthew Passion (2010, Gasteig, Munich).

Song

Pregardien is particularly active in the field of chamber music. He also develops concert programs that contain his own arrangements and combine various forms of chamber music. Together with the Gemeaux Quartet and the pianist Michael Gees, he has developed a program idea entitled Schumann ex tempore, which was first realized at the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival in the summer of 2010. At the heart of this program is an adaptation of the song cycle op. 24 by Robert Schumann for string quartet with improvised piano intermezzi. In 2011, the opus 24 was edited at the Heidelberg Spring.

Since 2008 he has performed in a duo with various pianists at numerous music festivals in Europe, including 2008 as the ≫Young Elite" at the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival,in 2009 at the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad as part of the ≫Jeune 'toile≫ series, and in 2011 at the Rheingau Music Festival and the Festival de Saintes.

With Franz Schreker's lullaby Schlafe, mein Liebchen, Pregardien is represented on the first CD edition of the weighing song project of the Carus-Verlag. Following on from this, a second edition of the song project with folk songs appeared, for which he took over the recording of Schubert's Das Wanderist des Lust from the song cycle Die schone Mullerin.

After a joint recital with his father Christoph Pregardien and Michael Gees at the Schwetzinger Festspiele 2010, the Father-Son programme was also on the programme at the Edinburgh Festival in 2011 and in the song series of the Oper Frankfurt in 2012.
