Ian Bostridge, tenor

The 2015 Spivey Memorial Concert, honoring the legacy of Walter and Emilie Spivey
A supremely expressive story-teller in song, British tenor Ian Bostridge creates performances of intensity, conjuring melody, words, and a nuanced range of tone qualities to extraordinary emotional effect. “After the final notes of Schubert’s “Im Walde,” he seemed rapt, and the audience held its breath, and applause, until he finally gave the signal that life could resume. That kind of hold on an audience can’t be faked” (The Boston Globe).
