Ian Bostridge


Ian Bostridge was a post-doctoral fellow in history at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, before embarking on a full-time career as a singer. He made his operatic debut in 1994 as Lysander in Britten's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' with Opera Australia at the Edinburgh Festival, and in 1996 he made his debut at the English National Opera as Tamino, returning for Jupiter in 'Semele'. Other opera credits include Don Ottavio, Belmonte, Quint, Aschenbach, Tom Rakewell, and Caliban in the world premiere of Thomas Ades’s The Tempest in 2005, now available on EMI.

 Recording of the Week, Beethoven songs and folksongs from Ian Bostridge and Antonio Pappano

The tenor and pianist are joined by violinist Vilde Frang and cellist Nicolas Altstaedt for selections from the Scottish and Irish folk-songs, following an exquisitely tender account of An die ferne Geliebte.

 Recording of the Week, Winterreise from Ian Bostridge and Thomas Adès

Fifteen years on from his first audio recording of the work, the British tenor retraces Schubert’s 'Winter Journey' with a new companion in an unsettling, unsentimentalised interpretation that’s underpinned by years of scholarship on both sides.
