Claire Booth joins Casa Da Music in Porto, Portugal to perform alongside the Remix Ensemble and Orquestra Sinfónica. Claire performs Oliver Knussen’s Requiem – Songs for Sue with the Remix Ensemble on 10th October, followed by a performance of Ryan Wigglesworth’s Augenlieder together with the Orquestra Sinfónica on 14th October, both under the baton of Wigglesworth.
With a growing reputation for the performance of contemporary works, Claire sung in the world premiere of Wigglesworth’s Augenlieder and recorded the piece alongside the Hallé Orchestra with NMC Recordings. Prior to her engagement in Porto, Claire sang in the London premiere of Oliver Knussen’s O Hototogisu! with Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, curated and conducted by Oliver Knussen. Later this season Claire will sing a programme of Knussen for the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel, Germany, as well as Les Illuminations with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
