Equally expert at music from the Baroque era to contemporary music, she has performed as a soloist with orchestra, in opera roles and song recitals through Austria, Italy and Germany and made two CD-Recordings of traditional Austrian Hirten- und Krippenlieder. Of particular distinction is a solo recital in her native city of Graz (Austria) in January 2014. The Styrian Tone Arts Association has invited Ms. Nair to perform an entire program of world premieres of works by contemporary Austrian composers. She impressed with a “lyrical, expressive and virtuous performance” and made this evening a “musical experience at the highest level” (Journal of the SAA). A CD “Von Kinder, Königen und Krokodilen” of this recital has just been released.
In addition, Ms. Nair toured Italy, Germany, Czech Republic, Canada and USA as a member of chamber vocal ensembles such as the Styrian Chamber Ensemble, Robert Stolz Ensemble and I Quindici Cantanti. With the latter she performed at the opening of the Styriarte Festival and followed with concerts at the Salzburg Festival at the Schloss Hellbrunn. In addition, Ms. Nair sang in Masterclasses with Frederica von Stade, Nico Castel, Mo. William Vendice as well as in workshops with Colin Mason, Eric Ericson and Ward Swingle.
Ms. Nair studied voice and conducting at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz as well as musicology (PhD) at the Karl-Franzens-University Graz and continued her professional vocal study with Garyth Nair and William Riley.
