Larmore made her operatic debut in 1986 as Sesto in Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito in France. She also has performed the operas of Rossini and Bellini and, as a champion of Handel, has sung the title role in Giulio Cesare in Amsterdam, Lisbon, Paris, Beaune, Berlin, Montreux and Brussels. Under the direction of Kurt Masur, Larmore made her debut with the New York Philharmonic with Mahler’s Lied von der Erde.
Larmore’s discography encompasses nearly four dozen recordings, for which she has received five Grammy nominations. Her solo recordings include the Grammy-nominated “My Native Land,” a collection of American songs with Palloc. In recognition of her contributions to classical music, Larmore was awarded the title Chevalier des arts et des letters in 2003 by the French government.
Her Occidental appearance is being made possible by the G. William Hume Trust. Larmore is the third artist to receive the college’s G. William Hume Fellowship in the Performing Arts, which allows recipients to perform at the college and offer a master class.
