The album “I Am Hera” is the debut album from recently signed Deutsche Grammophon artist Hera Hyesang Park.
Describing herself as a nomad and free spirit, Park is determined to follow her own path as she travels the world, challenging cultural, racial and gender stereotypes along the way. Her fascination with the issue of personal identity is determining the choice of repertoire for her forthcoming first album. Collectively representing her lyric coloratura voice and understanding of her art, her selected works will also be linked to key episodes in her life and career so far. She hopes this musical self-portrait will speak to a wide audience.
Park said: “Creating my debut album for Deutsche Grammophon has proven to be a process of self-discovery. I want to see what might be hidden beneath the protective layers in which we all need to clothe ourselves. This recording will let me show who I am and share the music I love in the most direct and simple way possible.”
