David Wilson-Johnson Overview

British baritone David Wilson-Johnson studied at Cambridge before singing at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he won many prizes including the Dove Prize for most distinguished student.  Over his career, he has been a guest of the major opera houses and orchestras and festivals worldwide and has sung under the most distinguished conductors. He made his operatic debut at Covent Garden back in 1976, and sang there regularly over 21 years in a wide range of roles. One of his most memorable concerts  was when he sang Beethoven's Ninth under Leonard Slatkin at the Last Night of the Proms in 2001 after the events of 9/11 to a worldwide audience of 340 million.

In 2006 he decided to retire from the operatic stage and his last performances were the title roles in Tippett's King Priam (Nationale Reisopera and BBC Proms), Albeniz's Merlin (Teatro Real Madrid), Shostakovitch's The Nose under Gennadi Rozhdestvensky (Netherlands Opera) and Messiaen's Saint François d'Assise (Edinburgh Festival). Recent concert projects included a tour with Sir Simon Rattle and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment for Schumann's Paradies und die Peri as well as tours with Frans Bruggen and the Orchestra of the 18th Century singing Die Schöpfung and Beethoven's 9th Symphony.
