Yeree Suh


The Korean soprano Yeree Suh, who studied voice in Seoul, Berlin, and Leipzig and at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, made her debut in 2003 as Nina in Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo under René Jacobs at the Innsbruck Festival for Early Music. Since then she has worked with such renowned conductors in the realm of historically informed performance practice as Philippe Herreweghe, Ton Koopman, Andrea Marcon, and Masaaki Suzuki; at the same time, she has also made a name as a performer of contemporary music. Thus she has performed Ligeti’s Mysteries of the Macabre with the Ensemble intercontemporain in New York, has sung in Boulez’s Pli selon pli at the Berlin Music Festival, and has appeared in Rihm’s Drei Frauen at the Theater Basel. In the 2013-14 season Suh will perform in Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito at the Innsbruck Festival and will record Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with Sigiswald Kuijken; she will also perform several lieder recitals with Jos van Immerseel.
