Despite her youth, the young soprano Nora Fischer has already been performing concerts all around the world for years with a repertoire that ranges from the 16th century to the most recent output of our own era. Her concert programme for the Rising Stars series illustrates this: alternating with rhythmic regularity between older works and contemporary music, it also boasts a world première in the latter category.
She has just as much passion for presenting new works as she does for early music - and of course for everything that music history has produced between the two chronological extremes. Several contemporary composers have composed pieces specifically for her voice. A witty, playful and original individual who brings character and atmosphere to her music, Fischer has already performed for the Hungarian audience in the past, including at Iván Fischer's composer's recital. Her concert also features a special twist: she'll be singing the modern pieces to piano accompaniment, but, for the early music, her voice will be joined by the strains of the lute-like theorbo.
