San Francisco Performances presents:

Mark Padmore, tenor with Jonathan Biss, piano

Friday, March 17, 7:30pm-9:30pm, San Francisco


Sublime English tenor Mark Padmore returns to SF Performances with kindred spirit Jonathan Biss in a recital pairing indelible works from Schubert's final months, lending their insights to a visionary whose unmistakable "Late Style" arrived at age 31. About an earlier performance of the Schwanengesang, the Telegraph observed, "Padmore gave the words an almost bodiless yearning quality."

He has established an international career in opera, concert and recital. His appearances in Bach Passions have gained particular notice especially his acclaimed performances as Evangelist in the St. Matthew and St John Passions with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and Sir Simon Rattle, staged by Peter Sellars, including Berlin, Salzburg, New York and the BBC Proms.

Voted 2016 Vocalist of the Year by Musical America, he has given recitals worldwide. he has performed the three Schubert song cycles in London, Liverpool, Paris, Tokyo, Vienna and New York as well as at the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg. In concert he has performed with the world's leading orchestras including the Bavarian Radio and London Symphony Orchestras, Berlin, Vienna, New York and London Philharmonic Orchestras, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Philharmonia. In this concert, he performs an all SCHUBERT Program: Sonata in A Major, D. 959 and Schwanengesang, D. 957
