Soprano Channa Malkin joins Interartists Amsterdam for worldwide management

September 20th 2020
We are delighted to welcome Channa Malkin as the second singer to join our new Vocal & Opera roster. Interartists Amsterdam will represent her worldwide.

Soprano Channa Malkin is known for her compelling musical personality and unbridled creativity. She was recently praised by De Volkskrant as “a young sound with a mature treatment. Her story-telling is profound”. She excels in a broad repertoire, from Italian baroque opera to Sephardic chamber music. A recent nominee of the Grachtenfestivalprijs 2020, she debuted at the age of 16 as Barbarina (Le Nozze di Figaro) at Dutch National Opera.

In the spring of 2021, her second solo album will be released by the high-end audio label TRPTK, including songs by Weinberg, Tavener as well as Russian songs by her father, Josef Malkin. Next summer, she will sing the role of Second Niece (Peter Grimes) in a spectacular seaside production led by Arnaud Oosterbaan and Paul Carr.

On the concert stage, Channa recently jumped in at a one day’s notice for Holland Baroque and Alexander Weimann in Handel’s Dixit Dominus and the world premiere of Hayes’ newly rediscovered oratorio The Fall of Jericho. Previous highlights include her performances of the Boy Solo in Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under the baton of Mariss Jansons, and the world premieres of Yizkor and Black Flowers, a cantata and song cycle for soprano, orchestra and chorus by her father Josef Malkin, in New York City, Salt Lake City, Sofia (Bulgaria), and with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra at the Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam. This season she has several projects with baroque ensemble La Sfera Armoniosa, including a Monteverdi aria and duet programme.

Channa has demonstrated her unbridled creativity and entrepreneurship with the creation of her own multimedia opera pastiche Handel goes Tinder, together with violinist Anastasia Kozlova and writer/director Michael Diederich. Channa has performed this production 33 times for sold-out venues and festivals in the Netherlands. In spring 2021, Handel goes Tinder will play at the Handel-Festpiele in Göttingen.

On the operatic stage, Channa’s performed roles include Despina (Cosě fan tutte), Zerlina (Don Giovanni), Charite (Cadmus et Hermione), Eve (In the beginning, a world premiere by Carlijn Metselaar), and all the female roles in a staged production of Grieg’s Peer Gynt at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra. Among her favourite performed roles are Dalinda (Ariodante) and Poppea (L'incoronazione di Poppea).

In addition to opera and concert, Channa enjoys telling stories and connecting intimately with audiences in song recitals. Her debut album Songs of Love and Exile, together with guitarist Izhar Elias, was hailed by the international press as “Glorious“. In the 2020/21 season, Channa Malkin and Izhar Elias will continue to perform their album programme at various festivals and concert halls as part of their Dutch tour, having already performed it at Dutch National Opera, among other venues.

Channa was born in Amsterdam into a family of classical musicians. She studied at the Utrecht Conservatoire with Charlotte Margiono, while simultaneously performing as a soloist in the Netherlands and abroad. After graduating with honours from the conservatoire, Channa went on to study with Rosemary Joshua, with whom she discovered her love for early music. She continues working with her vocal coaches Manuela Ochakovski and Roberta Alexander on new repertoire.
