Catherine King

Catherine King was brought up in Elgar country and after studies at Cambridge and in London, returned to the Welsh Borders. Much of her very full career has revolved around early music (with numerous recordings) but always alongside later and contemporary repertoire.

Concerts range from Verdi Requiem in Symphony Hall Birmingham and Elgar in Worcester Cathedral to medieval songs in the USA and Spain (caves and ancient churches), from Bach throughout Europe, and Italian Baroque arias in Genoa to Scottish 20th and 21st Century songs in Warsaw. She performs across the world with recent and forthcoming concerts in London (Harrison with ELISION at Kings Place), Trondheim (Bach), Spain (medieval) and Germany (Kleiberg Requiem), and a production of Wagner’s Die Walküre at Longborough in the UK. She has had many works written for her, including song cycles by Larisa Vrhunc, Tansy Davies and Barry Ferguson. Her numberous CDs include Bach ‘Alto Arias’ on Linn, Galuppi ‘Forgotten Arias’ (Gramophone Editor’s Choice) and ‘Airs de Cour’ (BBC Music Magazine Editor’s Choice).
