New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Congratulations to Julia Bullock, who has won the Edison Klassiek Award in the Netherlands for Solo Vocalist for her debut solo album, Walking in the Dark, released late last year on Nonesuch Records.
Julia Bullock, who won Breakout Artist of the Year in Germany's Opus Klassik Awards for Walking in the Dark in June, is joined by London's Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by Christian Reif, to perform Samuel Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and a song from John Adams's El Niño on the album. She is joined by Reif, on piano, for a traditional spiritual and songs by Oscar Brown, Jr., Billy Taylor, Sandy
Denny, and Connie Converse. Bullock is "one of the singular artists of her generation," says the New York Times, "a singer of enveloping tone, startlingly mature presence and unusually sophisticated insight into culture, society and history."
Bullock, performed two recitals at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City this week, will be in the Netherlands to perform in the world premiere of Ellen
Reid's The Shell Trial with the Dutch National
Opera in March. Her 2023-24 schedule also features the European premiere of John Adams's Antony & Cleopatra
in Spain in October; Adams's El Niño at The Metropolitan Opera in New York next spring; her adaptation of the piece throughout the US this fall; dates with Philharmonia Orchestra in the UK in November; and several recitals, including at Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall in January. The Edison Klassiek Awards ceremony will take place on October 9 at the AFAS Theater in Leusden, Netherlands. For details on all the nominations, visit edisons.nl.
