Described by The Times as ‘mesmerizing’, Mark Padmore has established himself as one of the most original and distinctive interpreters of his generation. He has been Artist in Residence with the Berlin Philharmonic and is Artistic Director of the St Endellion Summer Music Festival. His performances as the Evangelist in the Bach Passions are definitive, and he recently triumphed as Aschenbach in a new production of Britten’s Death in Venice at the Royal Opera House in November 2019. In characteristic style, Mark Padmore’s programme with award-winning guitarist Morgan Szymanski takes us on a journey from the renaissance right up to the present day, combining two wonderful contemporary British composers with two giants of the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries.
