The Artists

Austrian mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager enjoys an international career as one of the most in demand artists of her generation.  She divides her time between recitals and opera in Europe, North America and the Far East.  She is internationally recognized as one of the foremost interpreters of Richard Strauss and Mozart.  Recent operatic engagements include Orlofsky at the Vienna State Opera and Lucretia at the Theater an der Wien.  Ms. Kirchschlager was made a Kammersängerin of the Vienna State Opera in June 2007 and is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music.

Warren Jones was named as "Collaborative Pianist of the Year" for 2010 by Musical America.  He performs with many of today’s best-known artists, including Stephanie Blythe, Denyce Graves, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Anthony Dean Griffey, Ruth Ann Swenson, Bo Skovhus, Samuel Ramey, James Morris, John Relyea, Joseph Alessi, and Richard “Yongjae” O’Neill—and is Principal Pianist for the California-based chamber music group Camerata Pacifica.  In the past he has partnered with performers as Marilyn Horne, Håkan Hagegård, Kathleen Battle, Barbara Bonney, Carol Vaness, Judith Blegen, Tatiana Troyanos and Martti Talvela.  His collaborations have earned consistently high praise from many publications: The Boston Globe termed him "flawless" and "utterly ravishing"; The New York Times, "exquisite"; and The San Francisco Chronicle said simply, "He is the single finest accompanist now working."  For more information on Warren Jones, visit .
