Iestyn Davies by Chris Sorensen
After countertenor Iestyn Davies performed the England’s “Orpheus” program at the 2014 Spitalfields Winter Festival, the Financial Times wrote of “his pure tone flawless, his phrasing exquisite.” Davies, who also appeared in Broadway’s Farinelli and the King, sings songs by three composers—Dowland, Purcell, and Handel—who were likened to Orpheus, the mythical musician. For these songs—at times melancholy, tender, and bawdy—he is joined by the brilliant young lutenist Thomas Dunford who has been called the “Eric Clapton of the lute” (BBC Music Magazine).
