Mark Padmore “…did not so much sing this music as inhabit it,” is how the New York Times sums up the British tenor’s inherent ability to capture character and emotion in moving performances of a wide range of music. “It’s all about poetry and communication and putting the music across. It’s often in intimate situations where you’re best able to do that,” he told SF Classical Voice.

Premising playful content on music that’s often familiar, composer-pianist Ethan Iverson was a founding member of The Bad Plus. While DownBeat calls him “a passionate dynamo at the crossroads of jazz and classical music,” The Wall Street Journal has also described his playing as “austere and elegant.”
