Harriet Burns (soprano)

Soprano Harriet Burns is fast becoming one of the UK's most prolific young song recitalists. A winner of the 2018 Oxford Lieder Young Artists Platform, the 2017 Paul Hamburger Prize for lieder, and the 2017 Franz-Schubert-Institut Lieder Competition, she is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music and the Artist Masters programme at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (from which she graduated with distinction and was awarded a concert recital diploma in 2018). She has worked with many of the UK's finest chamber music organizations, and is a Samling Artist, Oxford Lieder Young Artist and a Britten-Pears Young Artist. Harriet will shortly embark on her final year at GSMD as a member of the Opera School.

Harriet made her Wigmore Hall debut with Graham Johnson in a recital of Schubert lieder in January 2018. She has subsequently performed with many of the UK's most prominent song pianists and chamber musicians, including Christopher Glynn, Sholto Kynoch, James Baillieu, Alisdair Hogarth, Sebastian Wybrew, and regular collaborators Ian Tindale and Michael Pandya. Harriet has appeared at venues and festivals across Europe including the Wigmore Hall, International Lied Festival Zeist, Oxford Lieder Festival, Ryedale Festival, the Barbican, and deSingel.

A passionate advocate of new music, concert highlights include Varèse’s Offrandes as part of the BBC’s Total Immersion series, works by Weir and Golijov in the This is Rattle series at the Barbican (Milton Court Concert Hall), Judith Weir’s Nuits d’Afrique (Oxford Lieder Festival and Ryedale Festival), and the premiere of Edward Nesbit’s The Burial of the Stars alongside Cellophony (Barbican).
