Yeree Suh - NOSPR
Yeree Suh delights audiences and critics with her radiant yet finely nuanced soprano. Having debuted as Ninfa in Monteverdi's opera L'Orfeo under René Jacobs at the Innsbruck Festival in 2003, the Korean singer has worked regularly with specialists in historical performance practice. The wide range of roles she has performed includes Mademoiselle Silberklang in Mozart's Schauspieldirektor and Semele at the Beijing Festival in 2010. With her exceptional vocal control and clear timbre, the soprano is also one of the most outstanding interpreters of 20th and 21st century music. Yeree Suh performed in the European premiere of Matthias Pintscher's with lilies white. She also participated in the world premiere of Rihm's Three Women at the Theater Basel (director: Georges Delnon). Her other engagements include ones with such conductors as Paavo Järvi and Susanna Mälkki as well as Nono’s Il canto sospeso with the SWR Symphony Orchestra at the Salzburg Festival, Ligeti’s Requiem (direction: Kornél Mundruczó) at the Ruhrtriennale in Bochum, and Brahm’s Ein Deutsches Requiem with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the Ravinia Festival. She has recorded works by such classics as Handel, Bach, and Haydn, as well as contemporary compositions by Judith Bingham and Michael Jarrell.
She studied at Seoul National University, Berlin University of the Arts with Harald Stamm, in Leipzig with Regina Werner-Dietrich and at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis with Gerd Türk. She is a professor of voice at the Akademie für Tonkunst - University of Cooperative Education in Darmstadt and at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Stuttgart.
