Fredrika Brillembourg opened the Inaugural NY Philharmonic Biennial Festival to universal critical acclaim. The New York Times called her performance as the Narrator in the US Premiere of Toshio Hosokawa’s The Raven with the Gotham Chamber Opera “vocally plush and dramatically courageous,” while the Financial Times described her as “tireless and astonishingly lithe while singing the impossible solos with sensuality when needed and abiding beauty.”
