Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling is a regular feature on the world’s most important opera, concert and recital stages and has enjoyed enduring collaborations with some of its greatest orchestras and conductors including Bernard Haitink, Simon Rattle and Esa-Pekka Salonen.
She is a graduate of the University of Gothenburg and London’s Royal College of Music, and her combination of vocal beauty, musicality and winning stage personality positioned her for an immediate launch to her international career with an early début at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden as Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier) leading to further productions at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre, the Theatre de La Monnaie, Brussels and at the Munich Festival. She has also performed extensively at Madrid’s Teatro Real, the Metropolitan Opera, Opéra National de Paris and Bayerische Staatsoper among others. As a concert performer, Tilling is highly regarded and a regular guest of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Orchestre de Paris, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, New York Philharmonic and the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Her growing discography includes three acclaimed recital discs with pianist Paul Rivinius. With the Richard Strauss collection Rote Rosen she took ‘her place among the leading Strauss sopranos of the day’ and her Schubert recital Bei dir allein! offered ‘Lied-singing of flesh and blood’ (Klassik-Heute.de). Reviewers of the recent I Skogen – Nordic Songs have especially praised ‘the weightlessly soaring lyricism and almost instrumental purity’ of her voice. Her most recent recording for BIS was a collection of Mozart and Gluck arias made with the period band Musica Saeculorum under Philipp von Steinaecker. Described as ‘outstandingly accomplished’, the disc was selected as the BBC Music Magazine ‘Opera Choice’ of the month.
