Cassandra Miller

Cassandra Miller (b.1976) is a Canadian composer currently living in England. Her cello concerto written for the Tectonics Festival, the cellist Charles Curtis and the BBC Scottish Symphony directed by Ilan Volkov was hailed as an “unexpected highlight of the festival” (Tempo), whilst her chamber work Bel Canto received the 2011 Jules-Léger Prize for New Chamber Music, Canada’s highest honour for composition. From 2010 to 2013, Miller was the artistic director of Innovations en concert in Montreal.

Juliet Fraser

Soprano Juliet Fraser has a repertoire dominated by the very old and the very new. In new music, she has performed as a guest soloist with Plus-Minus, ICTUS, We Spoke: New Music Company, London Sinfonietta, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Klangforum Wien and Remix Ensemble. She is also co-founder and principal soprano of EXAUDI vocal ensemble. Juliet has premiered well over 100 works, many of which have been written for her. Recent premieres include Michael Finnissy’s Andersen-Liederkreis with Mark Knoop at Transit (Leuven), Rebecca Saunders’s Skin with Klangforum Wien at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, and a new work by Cassandra Miller at Kammer Klang. Her recording of Feldman’s Three Voices was recently released on Hat Hut Records.
