Soprano Juliet Fraser has a repertoire dominated by the very old and the very new. Recent projects range from the ground-breaking music of Francesca Caccini, composer to the Medici, to the newest new works combining voice and electronics. Increasingly in demand as a soloist for contemporary repertoire, she has performed with new music ensembles Klangforum Wien, Talea, Remix Ensemble, ICTUS, Plus-Minus, We Spoke: New Music Company and London Sinfonietta.
She is an active commissioner of new music, and has worked particularly closely with composers Cassandra Miller, Michael Finnissy, Bernhard Lang, Andrew Hamilton and Rebecca Saunders. She is also a core member of EXAUDI vocal ensemble, which she co-founded with composer/conductor James Weeks in 2002. Her discography includes early music with the Monteverdi Choir, Collegium Vocale Gent and Gli Angeli Genève, contemporary ensemble repertoire with EXAUDI, and new solo works by Andrew Hamilton (NMC), Bernhard Lang (Kairos) and Morton Feldman (Hat Hut). She is the founder and artistic director of eavesdropping, a new series and a symposium dedicated to new music.
