Tim joins trumpeter Alison Balsom, soprano Lucy Crowe and The English Concert for a late night concert at Wigmore Hall on 8 May 2015. Trevor Pinnock conducts the programme of works by Purcell and Handel.
Tim and Lucy Crowe previously sang together in March in a performance of Pergolesi Stabat Mater, a partnership that received significant praise from the critics:
“The pairing of Lucy Crowe and Tim Mead was perfectly suited to the five solo arias and seven duets which make up this work; Lucy Crowe … was so well complemented by Tim Mead’s rich and even counter-tenor….wonderfully balanced, with no sense of striving or competition, no over-emphasis on the emotion, but instead with beautifully shaped lines and brief but glorious moments of unison.” Bachtrack, March 2015
Following this concert, Tim travels to the United States to sing the title role in the U.S. premiere of Handel Riccardo Primo (Richard the Lionheart) at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.
