Tenor Richard Edgar-Wilson is known internationally for his superb musicianship and for the quality of his voice. He has built his reputation as a Bach Evangelist, and is equally in demand for twentieth-century works, particularly the music of his fellow Suffolk native, Benjamin Britten.
Richard has worked with many of the world?s leading conductors, orchestras and accompanists, performing music from the Renaissance through to the many compositions written especially for him. Renowned for his interpretations of Monteverdi, Handel and Mozart, he has performed in many of the world's leading venues including La Scala, Palais Garnier and Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
Winner of a Gramophone award, he has created roles in television and on film, including the award winning feature film Suffløsen. Richard's extensive discography includes Messiah, Mozart Requiem, Die Schöne Müllerin, and works by Monteverdi, Bach, Britten and Bernard Herrmann amongst many others.
