Mezzo-soprano Re’ut Ben-Ze’ev has won critical acclaim for her “intense expression and pure voice” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) and “bold, committed account… so deeply physical was her performance…” (The New York Times). On the concert platform, Re'ut has performed in venues such as Lincoln Center, Spoleto Festival, USA, Jerusalem Music Centre, The American Academy in Berlin, Bayreuth Museum of Art, the Tel-Aviv Museum of Art, and for WQXR radio. Her standard concert repertoire ranges from Haydn’s Arianna A. Naxos to Mozart’s Requiem to Schoenberg’s Opus 2 (orchestrated for Re’ut by Gil Shohat), performed with St. Cecilia Chorus and Orchestra, The Israel Chamber Orchestra and others. A passionate champion of new music, Re'ut has performed and premiered many important new works by composers such as Pulitzer Prize winning composer David Del Tredici, Samuel Adler and Dalit Warshaw, in addition to recording with John Musto and Yehudi Wyner for Naxos, AlbanyRecords, Furious Artisans and YIVO label. She has collaborated with players of the Israel and Berlin Philharmonic, ensembles such as the Israel Contemporary Players (Pierrot Lunaire), Cygnus Ensemble, the actor Theodore Bikel and choreographer Yasmeen Godder (Ensemble nominated for the Bessie Award.) She recently toured Matthew Greenbaum’s video-opera Rope & Chasm as well as collaborating with Momenta String Quartet in premiering a piece written for them by David Glaser, and recording works by Steven Burke.
