venue to be announced

We are delighted to welcome Richard Jackson (professor of singing) and Andrew Robinson (professor and pianist) to lead a Masterclass working on stage with young professional singers to interpret the music and poetry of art-songs on the themes of relationships in Childhood and Adolescence. This will be held on Friday evening March 12th and we are hoping it may be held in one of the beautiful music rooms in a Cambridge college.

Richard Jackson

Richard Jackson’s singing career embraced such diverse elements as art-song, opera, oratorio and contemporary music. He was a founder-member of Graham Johnson’s ‘Songmakers’ Almanac”, travelling all over the world with the group; he collaborated with several major musical figures, including Rostropovich and Menotti; he was the original Christus in Jonathan Miller’s staging of the St Matthew Passion. Now, as a teacher, he leads song classes at the RCM, GSMD, and Trinity Laban. He is a visiting teacher at the University of York. He has taught as far afield as Australia, China, and New Zealand.

Andrew Robinson

Andrew Robinson studied at the Royal College of Music where he is now a professor specialising in the song repertoire, taking classes in Lieder and French Song, as well as coaching individual singers. He also coaches opera singers, is a choral accompanist, and répétiteur. As a collaborative pianist he has given recitals with both singers and instrumentalists throughout Europe, as well as in North America, Pakistan, Israel and Lebanon, and has broadcast on BBC Radio and Television.

Jan Wiener

Jan Wiener trained as a singer in her 20s and gave it up later as she was already a psychologist and wanted to train to become a Jungian analyst. She began to sing again about 15 years ago, and has developed a great love of German, French and Russian art-song. She has also sung a number of different operatic roles. She organises a Summer Singing School in South East France.
