Widely praised for her musical intelligence and “expressive virtuosity” (San Francisco Chronicle), Meg Bragle is quickly earning an international reputation as one of today’s most gifted mezzo-sopranos.
As a featured soloist with Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the English Baroque Soloists, she has made four recordings with the group, including Bach’s Easter and Ascension Oratorios – the vehicle for her BBC Proms debut − and the Fall 2015 release of Bach’s Mass in B Minor. She has performed as soloist in North America and Europe with many of the world’s premiere early music ensembles: the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Music of the Baroque, English Baroque Soloists, Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Les Violons du Roy, Apollo’s Fire, and the Dunedin Consort.
Among Ms. Bragle’s 2016/17 season highlights are appearances with the Milwaukee Symphony (Mozart’s Requiem), Cincinnati Symphony (Bach’s Mass in B Minor), St. Paul Chamber Orchestra (Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater), American Bach Soloists (Handel’s La Resurrezione), Early Music Vancouver (Bach’s Magnificat) and the Winter Park and Carmel Bach Festivals.
Recent orchestral highlights in the U.S. and Canada include engagements with the Houston (Beethoven’s Mass in C Minor), Indianapolis (Mozart’s Requiem), Pacific (Handel’s Judas Maccabeus), and Colorado (Mendelssohn’s Elijah) Symphonies; the National Arts Center Orchestra (Handel’s Messiah) and a series of concerts with the Calgary Philharmonic including Messiah and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. She performed Bruno Moretti’s Vespro with New York City Ballet, Bach’s Lutheran Masses with Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and tours of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and Christmas Oratorio with the Netherlands Bach Society.
At the Carmel Bach Festival this past summer she sang the role of Idamante in Mozart’s Idomeneo. She has also portrayed Dido and the Sorceress in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Dardano in Handel’s Amadigi, Amastre in Handel’s Serse, Speranza in Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, Ippolita in Cavalli’s Elena, and Elpina in Vivaldi’s La Fida Ninfa.
