Johanna Doderer

(born in Bregenz, Austria, 1969). She studied with Beat Furrer, Klaus Peter Sattler and Erich Urbanner. For years,  Doderer has been dealing with the issue of dynamics and simultaneity in music. The focus  of her creative work is on the opera, on solo and orchestral pieces, and on vocal music.

One of the composer’s trademarks is her constant collaboration with several important artists: Ulf Schirmer, Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Sylvia Khitti – Muhr are the people who, over the past few years, have most influenced her in her quest for a musical language. In 2006, her Opera Strom celebrated its world premiere in Vienna.  The Munich daily Suddeutsche Zeitung wrote:“Doderer succeeded in creating a score of highly independent character, inwardly shapely and outwardly full of unbroken energy. On Mon cher cousin for soprano and orchestra ( Augsburg Mozart Festival, 2008), The Washington Post wrote: Her music was so strong and colourful that it rather disturbed the delicate balance of the Classical–era works that made up the rest of Wednesday’s opening-night concert”. Doderer is currently working on her fourth opera, which has been  commissioned by the theater in Erfurt, Germany  (premiere  in 2010)
Selected Works: Strom, opera (Vienna, 2006);Der Große Regen, orchestral work, Brucknerfest (Linz, 2007); Mon cher cousin for soprano and orchestra, Augsburg Mozart Festival (2008).
Awards: Publicity Prize, 2004
