Yeree Suh

Yeree Suh delights audiences and critics with her radiant yet nuanced soprano voice, and has become internationally renowned as an interpreter of 17th and 18th century repertoire as well as of contemporary music. Since her debut as Ninfa in Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo under René Jacobs at the Innsbruck Festival 2003 and her appearances at the Berlin Staatsoper and Theater an der Wien, the Korean singer has regularly worked with early music conductors such as Philippe Herreweghe, Ton Koopman, Andrea Marcon, Jean-Christophe Spinosi and Masaaki Suzuki and with ensembles such as Anima Eterna, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Venice Baroque Orchestra and Finnish Baroque Orchestra.

She has sung Unsuk Chin’s Akrostichon-Wortspiel with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, and Ligeti’s Mysteries of the Macabre as well as songs by Anton Webern with the Ensemble Intercontemporain. Her repertoire also includes works by Pierre Boulez, such as Le soleil des eaux, which she performed with Pablo Heras-Casado and Peter Eötvös; Pli selon pli, with Jonathan Nott and Thierry Fischer; and Le Visage Nuptial, with Cornelius Meister. The singer has appeared in concert and opera at festivals and venues including the Lucerne Festival, Edinburgh International Festival, Tongyeong International Music Festival, Vienna Konzerthaus, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Philharmonie Paris, Barbican Centre in London and the Lincoln Center in New York. She has worked with conductors such as Kent Nagano, Ingo Metzmacher, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Jos van Immerseel.
