Mirjam Frank’s convincing performances of the recitative and aria of Svatava from Part II of the oratorio ‘Saint Ludmila’ and the complete ‘Biblical Songs’ stand firmly as a testament to Dvořák’s genius as a composer of vocal literature.

Wonderful recording session near Munich last weekend! ~ MF 01/2018


I have started my third year of doctoral studies at Royal Holloway. This means that the next months are particularly work intensive, and my concert activities are going to be fewer. But, as always, do not hesitate to get in touch! ~MF 10/17

Mein drittes Jahr als Doktorandin an der Royal Holloway hat begonnen! Das bedeutet, dass die kommenden Monate besonders arbeitsintensiv sein werden und ich demnach im Konzertbereich weniger präsent bin. Natürlich freue ich mich trotzdem jederzeit über Nachrichten und Fragen. ~MF 10/17


After my successful upgrade to PhD level at the end of May, I’ve submitted a chapter for publication, and am now preparing a wonderful repertoire of Bach, Brahms, Vivaldi and more for my participation in the Oxenfoord Summer School later this month! I will be working with many distinguished musicians, incuding pianist Malcolm Martineau, with whom I will be studying Vier ernste Gesänge by Johannes Brahms. ~MF 07/17
