Carolyn Sampson (soprano)

'Carolyn Sampson, now the best British early music soprano by quite some distance' [Gramophone]

Equally at home on the concert and opera stages, Carolyn Sampson has enjoyed notable successes in the UK as well as throughout Europe and the US. Her roles for English National Opera have included the title role in Semele, and Pamina in The Magic Flute. For Glyndebourne Festival Opera she sang various roles in Purcell’s The Fairy Queen. In 2012 she sang Anne Truelove in The Rake’s Progress in Sir David McVicar’s new production for Scottish Opera. She has appeared at Opéra de Paris, Opéra de Lille, Opéra de Montpellier and Opéra national du Rhin. She also sang the title role in Lully’s Psyché for the Boston Early Music Festival, which was released on CD and was subsequently nominated for a Grammy in 2008.

Carolyn Sampson’s concert engagements in the UK have included regular appearances at the BBC Proms and with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The English Concert, Bach Collegium Japan, Manchester Camerata and The Sixteen, among others. She is a frequent guest with the Hallé and has performed with City of London Sinfonia, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

Carolyn Sampson has performed with major orchestras throughout Europe, and in the United States she has featured as soloist with San Francisco Symphony, Boston Symphony, Detroit Symphony and Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and is a regular guest at the Mostly Mozart Festival. In 2013 she made her Carnegie Hall recital debut to a sold-out audience in the Weill Hall. A consummate recitalist, Carolyn Sampson appears regularly at Wigmore Hall, and a recital of lute songs with Matthew Wadsworth was issued by the Wigmore Live label. She has given regular recitals at the Saintes and Aldeburgh festivals as well as the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.

Her recording of Purcell songs for BIS was selected as Editor’s Choice by Gramophone. Her many recordings for Hyperion with The King’s Consort include a highly acclaimed album of Mozart sacred music, ‘Exsultate jubilate’, which was selected by BBC Music Magazine as ‘Record of the Month’, and was also the recipient of an ECHO Award. Her numerous other recordings appear on the Harmonia Mundi, Decca, BIS, Virgin Classics, DG Archiv, Linn and Vivat labels.
