Martyn Hill (Tenor)

Born: September 14, 1944 - Kent, England

Martyn Hill has established a reputation as one of Britain's leading tenors and his career has taken him to many parts of the world, working with such conductors as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Atherton, Richard Hickox, Neville Marriner, Yehudi Menuhin, Riccardo Muti, Seiji Ozawa, Previn, Kurt Sanderling and Wolfgang Sawallisch.

Martyn Hill's repertoire in recital, concert and opera is large, ranging from the Baroque to contemporary music. Operatic roles have included Idomeneo, Belmonte (Die Entführung aus dem Serail), Ferrando (Così fan tutte), Flamand (Capriccio) and Tom Rakewell (The Rake's Progress), while recent concert performances have included Berlioz' Grande Messe des Morts, Bruckner's Te Deum, Tippett's A Child of our Time, Britten's War Requiem, Serenade, Spring Symphony and Nocturne, and L.v. Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and Missa Solemnis.

Martyn Hill has made some ninety recordings including a Schubert recital with Graham Johnson as part of Hyperion's ten-year project to record all the composer's songs, and, most recently, a CD of Tippett's songs to mark the composer's ninetieth birthday.
