Adrian Horsewood interviews The Prince Consort for Classical Music Magazine
“Saving a recording with a hardback book, having a run-in with a celebrity talent-show judge, Scouse accents in art-song: not the goings-on one associates with your average classical vocal ensemble. But, then again, The Prince Consort is anything but average. Featured by The Observer in its review of 2010’s Best Classical Music, the Consort’s innovative programming and first-class performances mark it out as one of the most distinctive ensembles on today’s concert scene.”
After an exciting year and in view of the release of their forthcoming album, the innovative approach of The Prince Consort once again attracts media attention. Talking to Adrian Horsewood of Classical Music Magazine the group discuss their unique performances and future projects. They talk about their aim to combine traditional song repertoire with new music and ways of presenting to the audiences, by “showing how modern composers have responded to the older works”.
Horsewood also acknowledges that “these young singers have busy individual careers and names that easily coax nods of recognition from opera and song lovers”.
