About Robert Rice

One of the UK’s most versatile baritones, Robert Rice was a choral scholar at King’s College, Cambridge before gaining a DipRAM under Mark Wildman. His concert repertoire is extensive and varied: drawing on his experience in vocal consorts, he is often praised for his interpretations of the baroque masterworks; as a mature singer he equally enjoys Verdi, Elgar and Vaughan Williams. In recent seasons he has performed composers as varied as Humperdinck, at the Berlin Konzerthaus, Bach – St John Passion at the Southern Cathedrals Festival – and Howard Goodall at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. His main specialism is in works of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and he has been involved in premières of diverse new pieces throughout his career, those by Jacques Cohen, Paul Drayton, Errolyn Wallen and Hayley Jenkins being notable recent examples. His experience in performing contemporary music led to the creation of roles in stage works by Paul Clark, Judith Bingham and Nigel Osborne. He made his debut at London’s South Bank in a staging of Maxwell Davies’ Eight Songs for a Mad King. Robert appeared in the staged recital Art Sung: Alma Mahler (Wilton’s Music Hall), and with pianist William Vann has regularly performed at York’s Late Music series, most recently celebrating Walter De la Mare with several premières, (also featuring in the concert on 25th May). He has collaborated with guitarist Erich Schachtner in Germany and the UK on programmes of lieder and lute songs.
