With powerful and vocally thrilling performances in the world’s finest opera houses and concert halls with leading conductors and orchestras, Stuart Neill has established himself as one of the most important tenors in the classical-singing world.
During the 2016/17 season, tenor Neill took on the mantle of heroic tenor in his debut as Verdi’s Otello at the Macerata Opera Festival to outstanding critical and audience response, a spectacle held in an outdoor arena seating 3,500. Fortunately, Dynamic Records was there to capture the extraordinary event on CD, DVD and Blue Ray.
As a Verdi tenor, Mr. Neill is internationally recognized as the go-to tenor for the Verdi Requiem having performed this Masterpiece more than 250 times, including the historic ‘live’ recording with the London Symphony under Colin Davis.
Tenor Neill can be heard on more than a dozen classical recordings including Bellini’s Il Pirata for Berlin Classics, Verdi’s Oberto for Philips Classics, Janacek’s Glagolitic Mass and Taras Bulba with the Berlin Symphony under Janowski for Pentatone, and the Grammy Award winning recording of Stravinsky’s Persephone with the San Francisco Symphony under Tilson Thomas for RCA Red Seal.
