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. Juliet is an active commissioner of new music and has worked particularly closely with composers Rebecca Saunders, Bernhard Lang, Michael Finnissy, Matthew Shlomowitz, Sivan Eldar and Cassandra Miller. She regularly performs as a guest soloist with ensembles such as Klangforum Wien, Musikfabrik, Ensemble Modern, Asko|Schönberg, Remix, ICTUS, Plus-Minus and Talea, and has created duo projects with percussionist Maxime Echardour and pianist Mark Knoop. In 2015 she released her debut disc, Feldman's Three Voices (on Hat Hut); she has since released recordings of Andrew Hamilton's To the People (NMC), Bernhard Lang’s The Cold Trip, part 2 (Kairos), Michael Finnissy’s Andersen-Liederkreis (Hat Hut), Babbitt’s Philomel (all that dust, in binaural surround-sound) and a portrait disc of Cassandra Miller (all that dust).

Juliet is the founder and artistic director of the eavesdropping series and symposium in London, and co-director with Mark Knoop and Newton Armstrong of all that dust, a new label for new music.
