The 13th season of the Lied Cycle, coproduced by the Zarzuela Theatre and the National Centre for Musical Diffusion, will include one of the Lied performers that arouses the most expectation and consensus today, the English tenor, Mark Padmore who will be accompanied by the pianist, Roger Vignoles.
The tenor, Mark Padmore (London, United Kingdom, 1961) began his training studying clarinet, until he won a choral grant to King’s College Cambridge from where he graduated with Honours.
Since then, he has built a flourishing career in opera, concerts and recitals, performing in cities like Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, Madrid, Milan, Moscow, New York, Paris and Vienna.
He has worked closely with Rattle, Gardiner, Christie, Herreweghe, among others, and has performed alongside some of the world’s greatest orchestras, such as the Munich Radio and the Berlin, Vienna, New York and London Philharmonic Orchestras, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and the Boston and London Symphonic Orchestras. The most recent work by the London tenor includes the leading role in El Pasillo, the latest opera by Harrison Birtwistle.
Alongside the pianist, Roger Vignoles (Cheltenham, United Kingdom, 1945) he will perform Schubert’s first great ctcle, Die schöne Müllerin, with Padmore’s fine, stylish vocals.
