Counter-tenor

Iestyn Davies

“Iestyn Davies reigns supreme among countertenors.”
The Independent, 5 December 2015

Introduction

In 2017 Iestyn was awarded an MBE by the Queen for his services to Music.  A former Cambridge choral scholar, he went on to study singing at the Royal Academy of Music.  An esteemed Handelian, he has astounded audiences globally with his vocal agility in roles such as Orlando, Rinaldo, Ottone/Agrippina and David/Saul.  This year he will make his role debut as Giulio Cesare.  His intelligent and considered interpretations have led to fruitful collaborations with Thomas Ades, George Benjamin and Nico Muhly.  An engaging recitalist, with repertoire ranging from Dowland to Clapton, he has twice been awarded the Gramophone Recital Award for his recital recordings.  His outstanding west-end theatre project, Farinelli and the King, with Mark Rylance, will be staged on Broadway later this year.
