We welcome Catriona Morison and Malcolm Martineau to perform in Linlithgow.
Catriona Morison, from Edinburgh, was the first British winner of the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, in 2017, taking both the Main Prize and the Song Prize (jointly).
She will sing a recital programme with Malcolm Martineau, who has been hailed as “one of the world’s finest accompanists” by the New York Observer.
Catriona studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and at the University of the Arts in Berlin, graduating with a Masters in Opera with Distinction. In 2015 she made her debut in Richard Strauss’ ‘Der Rosenkavalier’ with the Vienna Philharmonic under Franz Wesler-Möst. The following season saw her become a member of the Thüringer Opera Studio, and she now sings at Oper Wuppertal.
“Catriona Morison is a great discovery, a singer with great charisma and simply angelically guided mezzo-soprano.” Andreas Falentin, Concerti
Malcolm Martineau comes from Edinburgh and studied at St. Catherine’s College, Cambridge. He has worked with many of the world’s greatest singers. He has appeared throughout Europe, in the USA and Australia, in many of the world’s major concert venues. He also has an extensive recording career.
