Irish Soprano Elizabeth Hilliard is an exceptional singer based in Dublin and is widely regarded as an imaginative and dramatic interpreter of new music. She has worked in close collaboration with composers including Jennifer Walshe, Christopher Fox and David Bremner and champions Irish art, music and composers, achieving recognition in the US and UK as well as her native country.
This summer, Elizabeth is releasing “Great Women”, a powerful new mini-album in collaboration with composer Gráinne Mulvey. The sole work on this new recording is a 26-minute piece titled “Great Women” for voice and electronics.
Both Irish and based in Ireland, Elizabeth and Gráinne have been collaborating together for over a decade. This release is their most ambitious yet, bringing together some amazing historical figures from Ireland’s history including Countess Markievicz, Rosie Hackett and Ireland’s former Presidents, Prof. Mary Robinson and Prof. Mary McAleese. These voices are not often heralded but have been hugely instrumental in shaping modern Ireland.
“Great Women” will be released on CD and all digital platforms from 11th June 2021. WildKat is thrilled to be working on a press campaign for Elizabeth and Gráinne’s release.
