Born in Horb am Neckar, Markus Flaig studied school and church music at the Freiburg im Breisgau Musikhochschule, going on to study singing with Beata Heuer-Christen and in the opera class of Gerd Heinz. He went on to further study with Berthold Possemeyer in Frankfurt am Main, until 2004, followed in 2006 with study under Carol Meyer-Bruetting in Frankfurt.

In 2004 he was a prizewinner in the International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition in Leipzig. Early appearances included rôles in Britten’s The Burning Fiery Furnace and Noyes Fludde and Purcell’s The Fairy Queen, and in Rameau’s Les fêtes d’Hébé at the Margrave’s Opera House in Bayreuth. Markus Flaig has since developed a wide repertoire ranging from the Renaissance to the contemporary and gave the first performance of a song-cycle on poems by Thomas Bernhard written for him by Franz F. Kaern. His first solo recording was devoted to cantatas by Bach, Telemann and Graupner. He has toured extensively throughout Europe, in Central and South America and the Far East, and since 1997 has collaborated in Lieder repertoire with the pianist Jörg Schweinbenz.
