Nora Fischer is challenging the way we listen to the voice. The Amsterdam-based singer is renowned for her adventurous approach to live performance and her innovative projects fusing classical and contemporary repertoire. This can range from traditional concert programs to genre-defying collaborations — such as her debut album, HUSH. Using her voice as a versatile instrument, Nora’s repertoire ranges from Monteverdi to the many compositions that have been written for her in the present day. Her “affinity with experimental classical styles and sharp dramatic instincts” (New York Times) have led to many collaborations with leading contemporary composers, including Louis Andriessen, Osvaldo Golijov, David Lang and Michel van der Aa. Fischer’s unique approach has taken her around the globe, from the Philharmonie de Paris and Walt Disney Concert Hall to the Lowlands Pop Festival or a mysterious forest at the Oerol Theatre Festival. She has premiered many new operas, most recently working with Dutch National Opera and Pierre Audi for the world premiere of Andriessen’s Theatre of the World. Other recent collaborations include performances with Kronos Quartet, Asko|Schönberg Ensemble, and l’Arpeggiata.
