Matthew Rose looks forward to an exciting (and busy) year ahead.
The new season got off to a tremendous start for bass Matthew Rose on Sunday 4th September, when he sang in a performance of Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis at the BBC Proms with the LSO and Sir Colin Davis. He will perform the work again when the orchestra and Sir Colin tours the piece to Bonn, Paris and to New York’s Avery Fisher Hall. In the first busy months of the 2011/12 season Matthew will also sing The Creation with the OAE and Trevor Pinnock in the Esterházy Palace in Eisenstadt and in Bucharest where he will also sing in a performance of The Seasons with the OAE under the baton of Adam Fischer. He also returns to the Los Angeles Philharmonic where he will sing Mozart’s Requiem at the Hollywood Bowl with Bramwell Tovey and to the BBC National Orchestra of Wales whom he joins for a performance of Beethoven’s Symphony no. 9 under the direction of Thierry Fischer. Matthew also finds time in his busy schedule to fit in a recital appearance at the Wigmore Hall where he sings a selection of Liszt’s lieder with the soprano Rebecca Evans and pianist Iain Burnside before he jets off to Amsterdam where he makes his solo recital at the Concertgebouw with pianist Helen Collyer. Throw in performances of Handel’s Messiah with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Daniel Harding, Bach Cantatas at the Tetbury Festival with the Archangelo Orchestra and Jonathan Cohen, another Mozart Requiem with the RSNO and Peter Oundjian, his debut with the LPO in Rossini’s Stabat Mater with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and his debut at the Metropolitan Opera, New York as Colline in Puccini’s La bohème and you have quite a start to the year ! Bravo Matthew !
