Biography

Born: Nov 9, 1965; Wales  
The Welsh baritone Bryn Terfel rose with astonishing speed to the top ranks of international operatic stardom in the 1990s. He is known for a big, warm voice, intelligent and dramatically apt portrayals, a six-foot-three-inch frame and those intangibles that add up to star presence.
He was born Bryn Terfel Jones and was brought up in a small village near Snowdonia, speaking Welsh. Even as a small child he was busy singing; he went to
Read more various eisteddfods (singing competitions) throughout Wales, his supportive mother, Nesta, chauffeuring him around. He used the money he won to buy soccer shoes. The eisteddfods taught him to face the stage calmly. "When I went to college I was streets ahead of others because I was used to facing the public," he says. He was awarded a scholarship when he applied to London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama. His teachers there were Arthur Reckless and Rudolf Piernay. Since there was already a professional singer named Bryn Jones, he adopted his middle name, for his stage billing.
He won two of the main prizes for Guildhall singers: the Kathleen Ferrier Scholarship in 1988 and the 1989 Gold Medal Award. Also in 1989, he won the Lieder Prize at the Cardiff Singer of the World Competition and second prize all-around in that competition. This competition is broadcast Europe-wide, and he immediately began getting requests to sing from the leading conductors. Sir Georg Solti called him "one of the great talents of the last ten years."
Although he got offers for all sorts of repertory, he weighed them with care, with a view to preserving the voice through a long career. Although he was already being offered the role of Wotan in three of Wagner's Ring operas, he started singing such roles as Figaro, and Leporello (lighter and more lyrical roles) and Jokanaan in Strauss' Salome (a heavier, though still lyrical, one, but relatively short). He edged into Wagnerian territory in the lyrical part of Wolfram in Tannhäusser, a part known for the lovely "Song to the Evening Star." In 1992, he won the Gramophone Magazine "Young Singer of the Year" citation and the "Newcomer of the Year" award at the inaugural International Classical Music Awards in 1993.
He has added Dr. Miracle and Captain Balstrode (Britten's Peter Grimes) to his roles, moved over from Leporello to Don Giovanni, sung Nick Shadow in Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress, and has triumphed in Verdi's Falstaff, which he plays with notable humanity and restraint; his Falstaff is a braggart who overrates himself, but not the buffoon some other singers make him. He also sings the evil Scarpia in Tosca.
He is active on the recital and concert stage. Mendelssohn's Elijah is one of his mainstays. Songs of Handel, Vaughan Williams, Schubert, and Richard Rodgers figure in his recitals and recordings.
He remains a passionate fan of football (both soccer and rugby) and enjoys opening major international matches such as the Bledisloe Cup in Australia. When the Rugby World Cup was held in Cardiff, Wales, he opened it with a memorable duet with pop singing star Shirley Bassey of the Rugby theme song, "World In Union."
In 1999, the small Welsh island of Bardsey revived an ancient tradition (which died out in 1927) by inviting Terfel to become their honorary monarch. Even though he has conquered the world of opera -- even overcoming the dismal acoustics of the Sydney Opera House -- he remains centered on Wales, where, whenever he can, he still helps his father with the farming chores.

"Chi č lŕ?"
"Madamina, il catalogo č questo"
"Giovinette, che fate all'amore"
"Manco male, č partita"

"Metŕ di voi qua vadano"
"Zitto... Lascia ch'io senta... Ottimamente"
"Vedrai, carino"
"Di molte faci il lume"
"Sola, sola in buio loco"
Mille torbidi pensieri
"Dunque quello sei tu"
"Ferma, perfido; ferma"
"Il mio tesoro intanto"
In quali eccessi, o numi
"Mi tradě quell'alma ingrata" (K540c, Aria)

"Calmatevi, idol mio"
"Crudele? Ah no! mio bene!"
"Giŕ la mensa č preparata"
"L'ultima prova"
"Don Giovanni, a cenar teco m'invitasti"
"Ah! dov'č il perfido?"
"Questo č il fin di chi fa mal!"
"Wie schön ist die Prinzessin Salome heute Nacht!"
"Nach mir wird Einer kommen"
"Ich will nicht bleiben"
"Siehe, der Herr ist gekommen"
"Jauchze nicht, du Land Palästina"
"Du wirst das für mich tun"
Wo ist er...Er ist schrecklich...Wer ist dieses Weib
Jochanaan! Ich bin verliebt...Zurück, Tochter Sodoms!
Wird dir nicht bange...Laß mich deinen Mund küssen
"Wo ist Salome?"
Es ist kalt hier
"Salome, komm, trink Wein mit mir"
"Siehe, die Zeit ist gekommen"
"Wahrhaftig, Herr, es wäre besser, ihn in unsre Hände zu geben!"
"Siehe, der Tah ist nahe"
"Eine Menge Menschen wird sich gegen sie sammeln"
"Tanz für Mich, Salome"
Salome's Dance of the Seven Veils
"Ah! Herrlich! Wundervoll, wundervoll!"
Still, sprich nicht zu mir!
"Salome, bedenk, was du tun willst"
"Man soll ihr geben, was sie verlangt!"
"Es ist kein Laut zu vernehmen"
"Ah! Du wolltest mich nicht deinen Mund"
"Sie ist ein Ungeheuer, deine Tochter"
"Ah! Ich habe deinen Mund geküsst, Jochanaan"

Introduction
You shall hear how Pau-Puk-Keewis
And when all the guests had finished
He was dressed in shirt of doe skin
First he danced a solemn measure
Then they said to Chibiabos
"Onaway! Awake, beloved!"
Thus the gentle Chibiabos
Very boastful was Iagoo
And they said "O good Iagoo"
Introduction
O the long and dreary winter!
Into Hiawatha's wigwam
Forth into the empty forest
In the wigwam with Nokomis
Over snow fields waste and pathless
And he rushed into the wigwam
Then they buried Minnehaha
"Farewell," said he, "Minnehaha"
Introduction
Spring had come wit all its splendour
From his wanderings far to eastward
Only Hiawatha laughed not
By the shore of Gitche Gumee
From the brow of Hiawatha
It was neither goose nor diver
Then the joyous Hiawatha
Then the generous Hiawatha
Then the Black-Robe chief, and prophet
Heavy with the heat and silence
From his place rose Hiawatha
On the shore stood Hiawatha
And they said "Farewell for ever"
