ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Jonathan Cohen (Conductor)

Jonathan Cohen is one of Britain's finest young musicians. He has forged a remarkable career with notable success as a conductor, cellist and keyboardist. He is well known for his passion and commitment to chamber music which he expands to diverse activities such as baroque opera and the classical symphonic repertoire. He is Artistic Director of Arcangelo and Associate Conductor of Les Arts Florissants.

Lydia Teuscher (Soprano)

German soprano Lydia Teuscher has sung with the Mannheim Opera and Stadttheater Heidelberg. Her recent engagements include concerts with the Gürzenich Orchester, Cologne and Markus Stenz, with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Sir Roger Norrington and with Double Bande and Rene Jacobs. In September 2006 she has joined the Semperoper/Sächsische Staatsoper in Dresden as a resident artist where her roles include Pamina, Susanna, Valencienne and Gretel.

Tim Mead (Counter Tenor)

Countertenor Tim Mead was born in Chelmsford, England. He began singing as a treble in the choir of Chelmsford Cathedral under the direction of Dr. Graham Elliott, who later encouraged him to return to the choir as a countertenor. After leaving school he read Music at Cambridge University, where he was a choral scholar at King’s College under the direction of Stephen Cleobury. Whilst at university he began to study singing with countertenor Charles Brett. He went on to win a number of scholarships to the Royal College of Music, London where he studied with countertenor Robin Blaze.

Benjamin Hulett (Tenor)

Since leaving Oxford University, where he was a choral scholar at New College with a degree in music, Benjamin Hulett has worked with many of Britain's leading choirs and orchestras. He is much in demand as an interpreter of music across a wide range of genres and has been hailed by the national press as one of the most promising young tenors of today.

Neal Davies (Bass-Baritone)

Winner of the Lieder Prize at the 1991 Cardiff Singer of the World, Neal Davies has since appeared with the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, English National Opera, Scottish Opera and Welsh National Opera. He is a regular guest at the Edinburgh Festival and the BBC Proms, and has taken part in notable recordings of Handel's Messiah, Saul and Theodora for DG Archiv with Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort.
