“…something of a rising glory” - The Times (London)

 

Tenor Gwilym Bowen comes together with pianist Paul McKenzie for a special recital to coincide with the groundbreaking theatre production of Dmitry at the Marylebone Theatre. Their concert features musical settings of Friedrich Schiller’s poetry, with repertoire including excerpts from Victorin de Joncières 1876 opera Dimitri, well-known and much-loved lieder from Franz Schubert (Der Pilgrim, Eine Leichenphantasie, Die Bürgschaft, Sehnsucht & Hektors Abschied) and more.

Acclaimed for the clarity and beauty of his singing and dynamic stage presence, British tenor Gwilym Bowen performs internationally with orchestras and ensembles of the highest calibre. Frequently described by reviewers as the “stand-out performance” (Independent, Guardian, Limelight Magazine) he is also a “Mozart tenor to the life and a little bit more” (Arts Desk) and celebrated for his interpretations of the J.S. Bach Passions “the most immersed I’ve seen an Evangelist in the drama” (bachtrack).

His recent recordings include Handel's Brockes-passion (BBC Music Magazine Choral Award finalist for 2020) and the world premiere recording of Dussek's Messe Solemnelle (Gramophone Magazine Choral album of the year 2021), both with the Academy of Ancient Music.
