“The composer plays music that inspired her soundtrack for The Passion of Joan of Arc, the visionary silent film from 1928, commissioned for the Chorus of Opera North as part of Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. The Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter and composer will be joined by the 36-strong ensemble at Huddersfield Town Hall on 23rd November 2022.
Over the course of five studio albums Julia Holter has pushed her experiments with vocals, songwriting and musical structures into astonishing and beautiful new territories. Scoring Carl Theodor Dreyer’s visionary 1928 telling of the martyrdom of the French saint, she finds an immense sonic tapestry at her fingertips, and an opportunity to dig deeper into her longstanding fascination with the art, history and music of the medieval era.”
