Noa Frenkel

Vocaliste and speaker 

Noa Frenkel is a true specialist in contemporary music.  In the past years she has performed at most of the venues and festivals and with the top of the contemporary ensembles that share this love for contemporary music with her: Klangforum Wien, Ensemble Modern, Ensemble Intercontemporain, Experimental Studio Freiburg and  the Asko Schönberg ensemble.

She sung world premières of Luigi Nono, Donatoni, Czernowin, Stockhausen and Kalitzke, and many of the composers whose works she performed have been inspired by her unusual rich low alto to write something specifically for her voice.

But this brand new match with Ensemble Variances and composer Thierry Pécou will allow her to do something she loves best: improvising! An exciting new programme and cooperation that will be inspiring - and challenging - for both performers and audience.

The Ensemble Variances receive support from Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication - Drac Normandie, Région Normandie, Spedidam, Sacem, Ville de Rouen, Odia Normandie, Onda. The Ensemble Variances is member of Fevis, Futurs Composés, Bureau Export and Profedim. It is member of Groupement d'Employeurs Solstice, supported by Région Normandie.
