Biography:

Irene Brigitte Puzzo (Trieste, 1989) completed her Master’s Degree in Renaissance and Baroque Singing at the “Arrigo Pedrollo” Conservatory in Vicenza with the thesis “Lágrimas de saudade. Contribution for a contextualized interpretation”, supervised by Stefano Lorenzetti and Hugo Soeiro Sanches. Currently, she is enrolled in the Artistic Studies PhD program at the University of Coimbra. She’s also involved in a research project led by Pedro Sousa Silva that focuses on the interpretation of Renaissance sources through solmization technique and specific principles of text underlay. She began her discographic activity in 2008, collaborating in a series of different projects. Concerning Early Music, we can name the following discography: the critical edition and performance of Du Fay’s mediaeval mass “Se la face ay pale”, directed by Claudia Caffagni (2017, Amadeus), a collaboration with the ensemble Sesquialtera (a recording commissioned for the Medieval and Renaissance Music Conference 2021), and a collaboration with the Arte Minima ensemble for the album “In splendoribus” (2021), dedicated to Portuguese renaissance music. Irene Brigitte Puzzo has furthered her Early Music studies by attending numerous masterclasses given by Claudia Caffagni, Gemma Bertagnolli, Christian Hilz Maria Cristina Kiehr, Emma Kirkby and Lia Serafini, among others. She has sung as both soloist and chorister at many festivals, including Trento Musica Antica, Hausmusik – Wunderkammer, Il Mese della Musica (at the Milan Cathedral), and Conversazioni con i classici at the Teatro Olimpico of Vicenza.
