Rising Stars with Baritone

Rising Stars is a unique and forward-looking collaboration between 22 of Europe’s leading concert halls, all members of the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO). Six young musicians and ensembles from various countries are selected each year and given the opportunity to tour the concert halls and perform before international audiences.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear tomorrow’s classical music stars today. Experience shows that those who are selected as Rising Stars also have internationally successful careers. This year’s Rising Stars will be presented during an intensive weekend of chamber music at Konserthuset Stockholm.

British baritone James Newby, nominated by Barbican Centre London, is a member of the ensemble at Staatsoper Hannover, where he has given acclaimed performances in roles such as Papageno in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Fiorello in Rossini’s Barber of Seville and Schaunard in Puccini’s La Bohème. He is an in-demand concert singer and has performed the solo in Bach’s St. John Passion and St. Matthew Passion; he has also given his own recitals at Wigmore Hall in London and Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

Here, he will perform with pianist Joseph Middleton in a spectacular programme of music by major vocal composers such as Schubert, Mahler and Brahms, to music by Cole Porter and a new composition by Judith Bingham (commissioned by ECHO).
