Evelyn Tubb


Evelyn TubbEvelyn Tubb has been called „one of the few truly outstanding sopranos of her generation“. For her innovative and original performances she is widely acclaimed and admired - her Repertoire ranges with ease and determination from Early Music to contemporary music.

 

She always has been equally devoted to ensemble singing, especially through her long standing association with the Consort of Musicke, probably one of the most distinguished ensembles of its kind, as well as to her career as a soloist, which has taken a unique path, working closely with Michael Fields, Anthony Rooley and other excellent accompanists. Her recitals are always exploratory, finding unknown masterpieces, presenting them with a real sense of theatre and bringing a rich diversity of vocal colour. Typically, a recital will move from exquisite still contemplation to fiery rage or disturbed madness - a whole spectrum of human passions.

 

Concerts led her to countless venues in the USA, Japan, Australia, Israel and Europe, most recently to Schwetzingen, to Hamburg (NDR), St Gallen and to Zürich, where she presented a new program, contemplating on the various aspects of solitude. Recent concerts included a new "Mad Lover" program together with Anthony Rooley in Potsdam, Hildegard von Bingen's Ordo virtutum with Vox animae at Bridgewater Hall Manchester, engagements at the the Schwäbisch Gmünd Festival, RheinVokal, a French Baroque Concert for the Sastamala Gregoriana Festival in Finland, Purcell’s The Fairy Queen in Lewes, several concerts and recitals in Dartington, at the Hannover Early Music Festival, a concert with Sprezzatura at the Handel Festival in Göttingen, and Handel’s Israel in Egypt in Madrid. At the Bachwochen Festival in Ewerbach / Germany she was singing for the fist time Nitocris in Händel’s Belshazzar with the Hannoversche Hofkapelle.

 

Furthermore, her art is well documented on already 16 solo CD recitals and over 100 other recordings (outstanding for example her recent recording of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas in which she portrays both the title role and the Sorceress). The most recent recital The Troubadour and the Nun (with Michael Fields) has been released on Etcetera.

 

In June 2011, Evelyn Tubb performed a romantic song recital at the Schubertiade in Gauting, at the Schwetzingen Festival a recital with music Daniel and Henry Purcell together with Anthony Rooley and in October 2011, she will be heard in a Shakespeare recital at the Bad Urach Festival, accompanied by Michael Fields.

 

In August 2011, she directed Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas and also sang the title role as well as the sorceress at the Lake District Summer Music in Cumbria.
