In recent years, mezzo-soprano Annette Schönmüller has established herself as one of the most versatile and sought-after interpreters in the field of contemporary music. The artist has sung at leading opera houses and festivals, including the Zurich Opera House (H. Holliger “Lunea”, G. Aperghis “Dark Side”), the Frankfurt Opera (R. Riehm “Sirenen”), the Konzerthaus Berlin (A. Hölszky “Bremer Freiheit”), the Staatstheater Darmstadt (L. Nono “Prometheo”), at the Munich Biennale (D. Fennessy “Sweat of the sun”), the Salzburg Biennale (S. Sciarrino “Infinito Nero”), the Wuppertal Opera (L. Nono “Intolleranza), the Klangspuren Schwaz or the Music Biennale Zagreb and worked with, among others.

Schönberg’s monodrama “Erwartung”.
