Soprano Dorothee Mields is one of today’s most sought-after interpreters of 17th and 18th-century music. She appears frequently at international festivals such as the Leipzig Bach Festival, the Handel Festival in Halle, and the Boston Early Music Festival. A favorite of early music specialists, her wide discography documents regular collaborations with Stefan Temmingh, Philippe Herreweghe (Collegium Vocale Gent), Wolfgang Katschner (lautten compagney), Masaaki Suzuki (Bach Collegium Japan) and other leaders in the field. Ms. Mields joined Oliver for an interview at the 2023 Boston Early Music Festival.

Dorothee Mields performs Johann Philipp Krieger’s An die Einsamkeit with Holland Baroque.
