Tenor Martin Platz received his musical training at the Würzburg University of Music. He studied singing with Martin Hummel and choral conducting with Prof. Jörg Straube. He also attended master classes with Magret Honig and Peter Nelson, among others. For several years he has been under the artistic supervision of Tilman Lichdi.

Martin Platz is a permanent member of the opera ensemble of the Nuremberg State Theatre, where he has sung roles as a lyric tenor such as Belmonte in Mozart's "Abduction from the Seraglio", Tamino in Mozart's "Magic Flute", Don Ottavio in Mozart's "Don Giovanni", Steuermann in Wagner's "The Flying Dutchman" and in the HauteContre roles of Rameau's "Platée" and "Les Indes galantes". In the 2022/23 season in Nuremberg, his roles included Alan Turing in the world premiere of Anno Schreier's opera "Turing". In the 2023/24 season in Nuremberg his agenda includes Capito in Hindemith's "Mathis, der Maler", L'Infea and La Natura in Cavalli's "Callisto", Alfred in "Fledermaus" and Don Ottavio in "Don Giovanni".

Martin Platz enjoys a lively collaboration with Jordi Savall, with whom he was heard in J. S. Bach's "Christmas Oratorio" (CD production) in Barcelona in 2019, followed by Bach's "B Minor Mass" in 2021. In 2022 Martin Platz made his debut at the Salzburg Festival as tenor soloist in Handel's "Messiah" under the baton of Jordi Savall. He also made his debut under the baton of Jordi Savall at the Styriarte in Graz. In 2023 he performed Beethoven's "Missa solemnis" under Jordi Savall at the Philharmonie de Paris, at L'Auditori Barcelona and at the Dresden Music Festival. He has also appeared at the Beethovenfest Bonn, the Berlioz Festival Cote Saint-Andre, the Musikfestspiele Potsdam Sanssouci, the Palau de la Musica Barcelona, the Philharmonie am Gasteig Munich, the Laeiszhalle Hamburg and many other renowned concert halls in Germany and Europe. His main focus is on the Evangelist parts of Bach's "St. John Passion" and "St. Matthew Passion", which are as dear to his heart as all other works by J. S. Bach. In 2018 he sang the Evangelist part in Bach's "St. Matthew Passion" in John Neumeier's choreography with the Hamburg Ballet in Moscow. In addition, he sings numerous concerts with works by Monteverdi, Handel, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Rossini, Dvořák and many more. Martin Platz has worked with conductors including Philippe Herreweghe, Jordi Savall, Joana Mallwitz, Christopher Hogwood, Bernhard Labadie, Wolfgang Katschner, Hansjörg Albrecht, Enoch zu Guttenberg, Marcus Bosch, Paul Agnew and Hervet Niquet.

In recent years he has also performed several times with the song cycle "Die schöne Müllerin" by Schubert, "Die schöne Magelone" by Brahms and Hugo Wolf's Mörike Lieder.

Martin Platz has been teaching singing at the University of music in Wurzburg since 2007.
