Nick Pritchard and Ian Tindale - Die schone Mullerin
Monday 16 January 2017 19:30
|Schubert||DIE SCHÖNE MÜLLERIN|
If Der Winterreise is the tragedy of an older man, Die Schoene Mullerin (The Miller's lovely Daughter) is the story of a young man's journey at the start of his life, a journey doomed only too early to end in tragedy. It is a perfect cycle to be performed by a young tenor.
Young British tenor Nick Pritchard was born in West Sussex. He sang in the choir of New College, Oxford (where he studied music)and then at The Royal College of Music International Opera School. He is also a Samling Artist.
Previous concert work includes King Arthur at Wigmore Hall with The Early Opera Company, Bach Cantatas for Ensemble Pygmalion, Spring Symphony for David Hill, Bach’s Mass in B minor for Sir John-Eliot Gardiner and On Wenlock Edge for BBC Radio 3. He is a frequent recitalist and appeared at the recent Oxford Lieder Festival.
Recent opera roles include Paulino The Secret Marriage (Britsh Youth Opera), Prologue The Turn of the Screw as an Opera Holland Park Young Artist, Tamino for the RCMIOS and Acis for Laurence Cummings.
Future plans include the St. Matthew Passion for Paul McCreesh in Minnesota, Albert Herring for RCMIOS, Ruggiero in Caccini’s La Liberazione di Ruggerio for Brighton Early Music Festival and roles for Opera North (in Leeds, Aldburgh and at Covent GArden) and for English Touring Opera in 2016.
He is partnered at the piano by Ian Tindale. Ian is a prize-winning pianist and accompanist specialising in song. He is also a répétiteur, organist, harpsichordist, and orchestral keyboard player. Recent engagements have included recitals in the Oxford Lieder Festival, Buxton Festival, Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and further afield in France, Corfu and Malta, collaborating with artists such as Christopher Purves, Susan Bullock and Soraya Mafi. He is musical director for this summer's Ryedale Festival Opera's presentation of Handel's Alcina.
The recital is generously supported by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust to whom our grateful thanks are expressed.
