James Gilchrist tenor Anna Tilbrook piano
James Gilchrist is one of the UK’s leading tenors and has performed in major concert halls throughout the world. He makes his Barber Evening Concert debut with his duo partner Anna Tilbrook.
Recognised as ‘the finest Evangelist of his generation’, his extensive repertoire embraces works spanning many centuries. He is an enthusiastic and prolific exponent of lieder and enjoys nothing better than putting together interesting and challenging recital programmes. His impressive discography includes the Schubert and Schumann song cycles, Finzi, Vaughan Williams and Britten. Most recently the pair have recorded a disc of Schumann song cycles for Linn Records.
Anna Tilbrook is one of Britain’s most exciting pianists, with a considerable reputation in song recitals and chamber music. She made her debut at the Wigmore Hall in 1999 and has since become a regular performer at Europe’s major concert halls and festivals.
