The Scottish-Icelandic soprano Hannah Morrison grew up in the Netherlands and studied at the Maastricht Conservatory; she subsequently continued her training with Barbara Schlick in Cologne and Rudolf Piernay at Guildhall School in London. She enjoys a close partnership with Sir John Eliot Gardiner, under whose direction she performed in Handel’s Alexander’s Feast at the Salzburg Festival in 2013 and, in 2014, with the Leip-zig Gewandhaus Orchestra in Schu-mann’s Das Paradies und die Peri and the Brahms Requiem. Among her additional artistic partners are Les Arts Florissants and Paul Agnew, and Jos van Veldhoven and The Netherlands Bach Society. Her schedule for the 2015-16 season includes performances of Bach’s B minor Mass with the Bach Collegium Japan and Masaaki Suzuki and of Telemann’s Pimpinone under Hermann Max, as well as lieder recitals at the Beethoven Haus in Bonn, the Philharmonie in Cologne, and the Oxford Festival.
