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 (click on biography,

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,
Die Schöne Müllerin,
and works by Monteverdi, Bach, Britten and Bernard Herrmann amongst many
others. To listen to samples from some of these discs, or to view
