JULIET FRASER | SOPRANO

© Dimitri Djuric
The past few months have been chock-full of premieres. I gave the first performances of Rebecca Saunders's new work, Skin, written for me and Klangforum Wien, at Donaueschinger Musiktage and Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. Mark Knoop and I premiered Michael Finnissy's Andersen-Liederkreis at Transit Festival 20/21, and then gave the UK premieres of Andersen-Liederkreis and Bernhard Lang's The Cold Trip, part 2 at hcmf//. (Watch the new video of the Lang here.) I also returned to the wonderful sound festival in Aberdeen with Richard Craig to perform works for soprano, flute and electronics by Gérard Pape and Patricia Alessandrini. EXAUDI's annual 'EXPOSURE' series continued with a characteristically blistering programme of new or very recent works by Newton Armstrong, Leo Chadburn, Jürg Frey, Andrew Hamilton, Claudia Molitor and Naomi Pinnock. The year closes, appropriately enough, with a tour of Bach's Weihnachtsoratorium with Gli Angeli Genève. 
 
Throughout 2016 I have been supported by an Open Space residency, and have spent some really precious time at the Snape Maltings developing, learning and recording new repertoire. Huge thanks to Aldeburgh Music.
 
2017 takes me to Porto to perform Skin with Remix Ensemble and to Amsterdam to record some more of the wonderful music of Frank Denyer. I will also be unveiling a new solo piece written for me by Cassandra Miller. Mark Knoop and I will be giving our new song cycles by Finnissy and Lang their London premieres, and I head to the USA for a series of workshops and performances in New York, Philadelphia, Buffalo and Chicago.
