GRETA BRADMAN - SOPRANO


































 

Greta Bradman

Greta Bradman is recitalist, concert and stage performer. Greta has been awarded critics choice awards including an APRA/AMCOS “Performance of the Year” award (2013) and numerous OzCart awards. She has been nominated for Helpmann, MusicOz and ARIA awards and was Limelight Magazine’s vocalist shortlisted as “best newcomer” in 2010. Greta was the 2013-14 recipient of the Australian International Opera Award. Greta has previously recorded for Sony Music, ABC Classics and independently, including two solo albums that topped the Australian classical charts for some weeks.

Since commencing her professional career in 2010 primarily as a concert classical singer, Greta has presented more than 1000 performances with orchestras including state symphony orchestras (Adelaide, Melbourne, Queensland, Western Australian, Sydney), the Australian Chamber Ensemble, Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, Australian Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, Wellington Symphony Orchestra, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Australian World Orchestra, opera companies ensembles and choirs, demonstrating her extraordinary vocal stamina and skill and her capability to learn music extremely quickly. The result is the relatively rapid amassing of experience in a vast array of repertoire from Baroque, classical, romantic, 20 and 21 century repertory.Australian composers who have written/arranged for Greta since 2010 include Peter Sculthorpe, Ross Edwards, Betty Beath, Moya Henderson, Paul Stanhope, Calvin Bowman, Katy Abbott, Anne Cawrse and Natalie Williams amongst others.

Greta’s voracious appetite for learning led her to complete a Fellowship at the Australian National Academy of Voice in 2013, thereby consolidating her approach to 20 and 21 century repertoire.As the 2013/14 winner of the Australian International Opera Award, in late 2013 Greta moved to Cardiff, Wales where she undertook further training at the Wales International Academy of Voice with Dennis O’Neill and colleagues. O’Neill did not work on Greta’s technique but rather extended Greta’s repertoire, describing her unusual combination of vocal range, power and coloratura as “gifting her a true Verdi soprano”. Richard Bonynge who met Greta in 2014 at WIAV described her voice as representing the “true old fashioned bel canto sound – the sort we only dream about today”. Bonynge went on to have Greta sing the title role of Rodelinda in the opera of the same name with him conducting, and has invited Greta to record an album of arias with him in 2015.

Greta has premiered many works including the Australian premiere of John Tavener’s Innocence, Tristram Cary’s I Am Here, Gubaidulena’s Sonnegesang, Jennefelt’s O Domine and George Crumb’s Apparition.

In 2015 Greta will record her debut album with Decca Classics and Richard Bonynge conducting the English Chamber Orchestra. She will present the role of Eurydice in Haydn’s opera L’anima del filosofo under the baton of Richard Bonynge, will tour internationally with Zubin Mehta and the Australian World Orchestra, will tour internationally with Teddy Tahu Rhodes, David Hobson and Lisa McCune, and will present concerts around the Asia pacific, UK and Europe.
