Today, we are thrilled to bring you a musical message from stunning and versatile British countertenor Tim Mead.
On the concert platform Tim has sung Messiah with the New York Philharmonic, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Academy of Ancient Music, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai, Accademia Bizantina and Concerto Köln, Bach Christmas Oratorio with Les Arts Florissants, among so many others.
Tim’s recent operatic highlights include his role as Oberon in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Glyndebourne Festival Opera and Bergen National Opera, the title role in Philip Glass’s Akhnaten and Ottone in Handel’s Agrippina at Opera Vlaanderen, a reprisal of the role of Boy/Angel in George Benjamin’s Written on Skin at the Bolshoi, and Ottone in L’incoronazione di Poppea at English National Opera, Opéra de Lyon and Opéra de Lille.
Music Director Richard Egarr and Tim have enjoyed working together for many years, and while we had looked forward to Tim’s Philharmonia debut in February, we’ll have to wait just a little longer.
Please enjoy Tim’s gorgeous rendition of the Scottish folk tune “O waly, waly.”
