Andrei Bondarenko, baritone, with Gary Matthewman, piano

Since winning the 2011 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition Song Prize, young Ukrainian baritone Andrei Bondarenko has gone on to a series of successful appearances with some of Europe's most prestigious opera houses and orchestras. He has already made debuts at both the Glyndebourne and Salzburg Festivals, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Opernhaus Zürich, and the Bavarian State Opera. In the coming season he will debut at the Royal Opera Covent Garden and sing his first solo recitals at London's Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall, and the Vienna Konzerthaus. He has recorded the Count in Le nozze di Figaro for Sony and Rachmaninoff songs for Delphian, and anticipates a CD release of Tchaikovsky songs later this year for the Little Tribeca label. His program will include selections by Tchaikovsky, Ravel, Massenet, Fauré, Ibert, and Saint-Saëns.

"Bondarenko...has an astonishingly beautiful voice, and is on his way to greatness." The Guardian (London)
