Nigel Short (conductor)

Award-winning conductor Nigel Short has built up an enviable reputation for his concert and recording work with leading orchestras and ensembles across the world.

A singer of great acclaim, Nigel was a member of the world-renowned vocal ensemble The King’s Singers from 1994–2000. Upon leaving the group, he formed Tenebrae, a virtuosic choir that embraced his dedication to passion and precision. Under his direction, Tenebrae has enjoyed collaborations with orchestras and instrumentalists of various musical genres and now enjoys a reputation as one of the world’s finest choral ensembles.

To date, Nigel has conducted the Aurora Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, English Chamber Orchestra, English Concert, London Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Scottish Ensemble. He has directed the London Symphony Orchestra with Tenebrae in a live recording of Fauré’s Requiem, which was nominated for the Gramophone Awards (2013). Since then, he has conducted the orchestra alongside Tenebrae for a sold-out performance in St Paul’s Cathedral as part of the City of London Festival. Other orchestral recordings include Mozart’s Requiem and Ave verum corpus with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and two discs of music by Will Todd with the English Chamber Orchestra.

Nigel has vast recording experience having conducted recordings for many of the world’s major record labels including Decca Classics, Deutsche Grammophon, EMI Classics, LSO Live, Signum and Warner Classics. As a Gramophone award-winning producer, Nigel works with many of the UK’s leading professional choirs and vocal ensembles including Alamire, Ex Cathedra, Gallicantus and The King’s Singers.
