Dame Felicity Lott
He started studying piano at the age of 5. He is a former student of the Royal Holloway, University of London where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts in French and Latin in 1969.
Lott has gained an international reputation as a concert singer, collaborating with most of the great conductors currently active. The artist has a special love for French “Melodies”, German “Lied” and the repertoire of English arias, particularly Britten’s arias. His companion was Graham Johnson, with whom he held a large number of recitals together. She also performed in duet recitals with mezzo-soprano Murray, baritone Thomas Allen and mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager.
She also sang in a recording of Mozart’s Requiem with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir.
Described as “that unparalleled song companion” (Daily Telegraph November 2015) Graham Johnson has performed with the world’s leading concert performers, and has recorded a lot for Hyperion Records. He is a Senior Professor of Accompaniment at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He was named OBE on the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in 1994, Chevalier on the Ordre des Arts et Lettres by the French government in 2002 and an honorary member of the Royal Philharmonic Society in 2010. In 2013 he was awarded the Wigmore Hall Medal, and received an honorary degree from both Durham University and the New England Conservatory of Music. In 2014 he was awarded the Hugo Wolf Medal for his services to the art of song, and also his three-volume Schubert: The Complete Songs was published that year.
