Since her debut as Ninfa in Monteverdi’s Orfeo under René Jacobs at the Innsbruck Festival in 2003, and her appearances at the Berlin Staatsoper and Theater an der Wien, Korean soprano Yeree Suh has worked regularly with early music conductors such as Philippe Herreweghe, Ton Koopman, Andrea Marcon, Jean-Christophe Spinosi, and Masaaki Suzuki, and with ensembles including Anima Eterna, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, the Venice Baroque Orchestra, and the Finnish Baroque Orchestra. She held the part of Mademoiselle Silberklang in Mozart’s Der Schauspieldirektor on tour with the Concerto Köln under Harald Schmidt, and debuted at the Beijing Festival in 2010 as Semele. Yeree Suh is also a prominent interpreter of 20th- and 21st-century music. Under the direction of Kent Nagano with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, she gave the European premiere of Matthias Pintscher’s With Lilies White. She has also performed George Benjamin’s A Mind of Winter with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra under Paavo Järvi, Unsuk Chin’s Akrostichon-Wortspiel with the Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France, and Ligeti’s Mysteries of the Macabre with the Ensemble intercontemporain under Susanna Mälkki. Yeree Suh studied at the Seoul National University, the Universtät der Künste Berlin with Harald Stamm, in Leipzig with Regina Werner-Dietrich, and at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis with Gerd Türk.
