Inger Dam-Jensen  

soprano

Inger Dam-Jensen is one of Scandinavia’s leading sopranos. She is a soloist at the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen and a sought-after guest on opera and concert stages all over Europe. In 1993 she won the BBC’s major competition “Singer of the World” in Wales. Since then she has sung at venues such as Covent Garden in London, the Bastille Opera in Paris and the Glyndebourne Festival in England. She has been a soloist with the leading English orchestras and with among others the Berlin Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestra. It is mainly music by Mozart, Richard Strauss and Mahler that has typifi ed Inger Dam-Jensen’s career. She has appeared in the soprano parts in Mahler’s orchestral works conducted by among others Colin Davis and Christoph von Dohnányi, and has sung Lieder by Strauss with Vladimir Ashkenazy and Malcolm Martineau. She also sings a great deal of Baroque music, not least Handel, and has received high praise for the role of Cleopatra in Handel’s opera Julius Caesar in a production with the countertenor Andreas Scholl. The performance has been issued on DVD. Along with Scholl she has also performed Handel’s opera Parthenope, both in Copenhagen and at the Proms in London, and she has recorded the oratorio Solomon with the conductor Paul McCreesh. Inger Dam-Jensen appears on a long succession of CDs from Dacapo, including a reference recording of Carl Nielsen’s songs. Her other recordings for Dacapo include Langgaard’s Second Symphony, the opera Liden Kirsten by J.P.E. Hartmann and August Enna’s The Little Match-Girl.
