Biography

Born: September 11, 1952  
Catherine Bott is one of the leading London-based sopranos, particularly renowned among those participating regularly in early music performances. She studied with Arthur Reckless at the Guildhall School of Music. The early music movement was burgeoning in England at the time of her graduation, and she found that the music appealed to her sensibilities. Her interpretations and performances are frequently noted for their intelligence.

Her
Read more recordings include Purcell's The Fairy Queen (Erato), the part of Drusilla in L'Incoronazione di Poppea on Deutsche Grammophon, Herodiade Figlia in Stradella's San Giovanni Battista (Erato), Venus in John Blow's Venus and Adonis, a recording of Monteverdi's Vespers, Monteverdi's Orfeo, and a recital of "mad songs" and scenes from English Restoration theater, all the latter on Decca.

She has appeared with Marc Minkowski and Les Musiciens du Louvre; the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra; Christopher Hogwood and the Academy of Ancient Music; Stephen Layton and Polyphony; the New London Consort under Philip Pickett; the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra; and the American Bach Soloists. Works she has sung include Mozart's Requiem, Regina Coeli, and Exsultate Jubilate; programs of vocal music by Handel and Vivaldi, Handel's Messiah, Bach's B Minor Mass, and Carissimi's Historia de Jepthe.

However, her activities are not limited to Classical and Baroque music. Romantic era works include Fauré's Requiem, Nielsen's Third Symphony, and Mahler's Das Klagende Lied. Her modern repertory includes Berio's Laborintus II; Michael Nyman's Noises, Sounds, and Sweet Airs; Nicolai Korndorf's Hymnus III; John Harle's Silencium; and Michael Torke's Four Proverbs. She also sang on the soundtrack of the film The Emerald Forest.

She has appeared at the Brixen and Spitalfield's Festivals, the Kilkenny Arts Week, and the Lunchtime Concert Series at St. John's, Smith, Square. She has made 40 broadcast recordings for BBC Radio 3. Read less
