Simon makes his role debut as Fagin in Oliver! opening tonight at Grange Park Opera. He has given a short interview to Askonas Holt in which he speaks about his first appearance in a musical.
Clasart-Classic: “… The recording of “Ein Deutsches Requiem” at the baroque monastery of St. Florian in August 2016 marks the crowning point of The Cleveland Orchestra’s Brahms Cycle. For the performance of this great monument of choral music, The Cleveland Orchestra will be joined by Hanna-Elisabeth Müller, Simon Keenlyside and the Vienna Singverein.”
