Tenor Mark Padmore and pianist Jonathan BissKnown for his work in song and oratorio, the English tenor, Mark Padmore sings with clarity, authority and penetrating dramatic intensity.

Having developed a flourishing career in opera, concert and recital Padmore is paired at The Clarice with Jonathan Biss. The young pianist asserts that his concert debut occurred pre-natally under the direction of the late Lorin Maazel thanks to his violinist mother, but it is his post-natal performances on the piano that have attracted attention for their artistry, musical intelligence and deeply felt interpretations.
