Camille van Lunen
* 25.11.1957 in Amsterdam
The Dutch/French composer and soprano Camille van Lunen was born in Amsterdamis an eclectic composer, not adhering rigidly to a single school but drawing rather upon multiple influences and ideas to gain complementary insights into her subjects. Whilst respecting many conventions of compositional form and technique, she is not afraid to explore unusual combinations of voices and instruments in her search for dramatic immediacy.
Camille van Lunen is the winner of the International Competition for Women Composers of the Hochschule für Musik Nuremberg and the Mariann Steegmann Foundation 2013.
Van Lunen's experience as a singer is reflected in her own vivid writing for both solo voice (in the songs and operas) and in her choral works. Both illustrate her strong dramatic instinct and sensitivity to French, English and German texts, reflecting her own polyglot background. A very practical composer, Camille van Lunen has responded to a wide variety of commissions to produce works of great originality and in a highly distinctive style, ranging from The Rock Boy (Leverkusen, 2005) for young people to O Mare Nostrum (Acht Brücken Festival Köln, 2016), an adaptation of her prize-winning O Sacrum Convivium which gives a voice to recently-arrived refugees in Cologne. A lively wit characterises much of her chamber music, as in the humorous wind quintet Entgleist (2006) and the Songs of the British Isles (2008). Her works are both demanding and rewarding for performers and audiences alike. Hers is very much a voice for today.
