Legendary tenor Ian Bostridge to perform at the College Concert Series

Publication Date

Tenor Ian Bostridge and pianist Julius Drake perform on Saturday, Feb. 10 at 3 p.m. in Memorial Chapel.

Returning after his sold-out 2015 recital of Schubert’s Winterreise, the legendary British tenor and his regular recital partner bring a selection of some of Schubert’s most celebrated songs for a special Saturday matinee performance.

Bostridge’s international recital career takes him to the foremost concert halls of Europe, Japan and North America. He has appeared with the Berlin, Los Angeles, New York, and Vienna philharmonics, Royal Concertgebouw, Boston and London symphonies and the Orchestra of the Metropolitan Opera, among many others. Highlights of last season included his operatic debut at La Scala, an American recital tour of Schubert’s ‘Winterreisse’ with Thomas Adès, a staged Schubert project with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, performances of Zender’s ‘Winterreise’ in Taipei, Perth and for Musikkollegium Winterthur, and Britten’s Curlew River in Hamburg and Madrid.

His many recordings have won all the major international record prizes and been nominated for 13 Grammys. He was awarded a CBE in the 2004 New Year’s Honors. In 2014 he was Humanitas Professor of Classical Music at the University of Oxford. In 2016 he was awarded the Cooper Prize for nonfiction writing for his book ‘Schubert’s Winter Journey: Anatomy of an Obsession’.
