We are delighted to welcome soprano & composer Héloïse Werner to our roster for general management.
Specialising in contemporary music, Héloïse has performed widely across the UK, both as a soloist and as a member of The Hermes Experiment, of which she is a co-director.
She premiered her solo opera The Other Side of the Sea, first developed during her Snape Maltings residency under the mentorship of Zoë Martlew, at Kings Place in 2019, appeared in The Grange Festival’s production of Precipice as the singing narrator in 2020, and premiered Freya Waley-Cohen’s new song cycle for soprano and string quartet at Conway Hall, written for her and the Tippett Quartet. At Wigmore Hall, she premiered her work mixed phrases with Lawrence Power, for whom it was written, earlier this year. As well as for Lawrence, Héloïse recently wrote new works for The Bach Choir, The Gesualdo Six, Helen Charlston and Fenella Humphreys.
Her lockdown project Coronasolfege has been featured on the BBC and France Musique, in Gramophone Magazine, The Observer and the BBC Proms Catalogue 2021, and earned her a commendation at the Royal Philharmonic Society Awards. The New York Times also recently drew attention to her work Confessional.
Héloïse records her first solo disc, Phrases, on Delphian Records this autumn, which features new works by Josephine Stephenson, Elaine Mitchener, Nico Muhly and Oliver Leith, alongside a selection from Georges Aperghis's Récitations and four of her own works.

Héloïse is managed by Christoph Mayr.
