Clint van der Linde (alto)

Born in South Africa, Clint van der Linde started singing at the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir School aged ten. He gained the Queen Mother Scholarship for a four year B-Mus Degree at the RCM, London, where he completed his Post-Graduate studies, and in 1998 won the first prize in the Kathleen Ferrier Society Bursary for Young Singers.

Clint’s musical passport to the UK was thanks to the Eton Choral Courses. In 1996 after his first Eton Choral Course, he was invited to join The Rodolfus Choir with which he did several tours including to the States. Soon after, he was offered an International scholarship to attend Eton College for one year.

He has worked as a soloist with major orchestras throughout the world, including the Il Fondamento, the Hanover Band, the Israel Camerata, the King’s Consort, the London Handel Orchestra, Le Musiche Nove, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Salzburg Camerata and the Stuttgart Baroque Orchestra. Conductors with whom he has appeared include Frieder Bernius, Stephen Cleobury, Paul Dombrecht, Wolfgang Gönnenwein, Wolfgang Katschner, Gerard Korsten, Nicholas Kraemer, Sir Roger Norrington, Claudio Osele, Peter Schreier and Jan Willem de Vriend.

At the RCM, Clint van der Linde’s repertoire included Oberon in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the title roles in Flavio, Lotario and Ottone and Judas in Brockes Passion. He has repeated the role of Oberon at the Royal Danish Opera and his operatic repertoire has further included Fernando in Don Chischiotte in Sierra Morena with Musikwerkstatt Wien, Dardanus in Amadigi with Der Lautten Compageney, Berlin, Narciso in Agrippina with the Combattimento Consort (a performance now available on DVD) and The Guardian of the Threshold in Die Frau ohne Schatten at La Monnaie. He made his debut at the 2009 Edinburgh International Festival singing the title role in Rinaldo with Bach Collegium Japan under the direction of Masaaki Suzuki.

Current engagements include the title roles in Flavio and Tolomeo for English Touring Opera, Andronico in Tamerlano at the Göttingen Festival, the St John Passion with Polyphony and the Academy of Ancient Music, an Australian tour of Messiah with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Queensland Orchestra conducted by Stephen Layton and Messiah with the Bach Collegium Japan.
