Isabelle Rejall (Mezzo-soprano)

Born: June 2, 1985 - Germany

The German mezzo-soprano, Isabelle Rejall, has received business training before she studied singing at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin (2007-2014) and the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini in Florence under Kammersänger Professor Thomas Quasthoff and Kammersängerin Professor Carola Nossek. She also attended master-classes given by Christine Schäfer, Gerd Uecker, Peter Schreier, Burkhard Kehrung, Helmuth Rilling and Gerhild Romberger. After completing her formal studies with top grades she has been studying privately since April 2016 with Janice Alder-Alford. Even prior to her studies, she was a multiple prize winner at the German National Music Competition "Jugend musiziert ", and was both a prize winner in the "Talent Campus" competition organised by the Berliner Philharmonischer Chor (2012) and a finalist at the Rome "Concorso Musica Sacra" (2014).

Isabelle Rejall's repertoire ranges from Claudio Monteverdi and J.S. Bach to contemporary music. In 2014, i.e., she sang the leading role in the world premiere of Helmut Zapf's Das Glück at the Philharmonie Berlin (conductor Achim Zimmermann), which was streamed by Deutschlandfunk Kultur Radio. Other engagements included the Händelfestspiele, Thüringer Bachwochen, Bachwoche Stuttgart and Trigonale Kärnten and a collaboration with the Hamburger Symphoniker, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Leipziger Barockorchester, Munich Barockorchester L'arpa festante, and Lautten Compagney.

Recently Isabelle Rejall gave her debut at the Staatoper im Schillerthetaer Berlin, Staattheater Darmstadt and at the Tongyeong International Music Festical in South Korea. Also in 2016 she performed at the Halle Opera Das Kunstwerk der Zukunft, directed by Michael von zur Mühlen. She has also sung the roles of Ramiro in W.A. Mozart's La Finta Giardiniera, Zita in Puccini's Gianni Schicchi, and Nutrice in Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea. The aforementioned productions let her work with conductors like Stefan Asbury, Johannes Harneit, David Coleman and Wolfgang Katschner. In November 2017, she will return as a guest at the Staatsoper unter den Linden Berlin.

As a concert artist Isabelle Rejall is in the process of establishing herself. 2017 she toured in a J.S. Bach programme with Matthias Goerne and the Freiburger Barockorchester. In the spring of 2018 a collaboration with Anima Eterna Brugge is planned, L.v. Beethoven's' Symphony No. 9, to be conducted by Jos van Immerseel.

Isabelle Rejall has a predilection for song recitals. Together with Alexander Fleischer and Yvonne Gesler amongst others she has been invited to perform at the Weimar "Lyrische Salon", the Dessau Kurt Weil Fest and at the Berlin Philharmonie. She currently lives in Berlin, Germany.
