JENNIFER PARTRIDGE - Piano
Jennifer Partridge is acknowledged
as one of Britain's leading piano accompanists as well
as a most sensitive solo performer. In particular,
she has earned international recognition with her brother,
the tenor Ian Partridge, for the beautifully balanced
musical partnership they have achieved in innumerable
broadcasts and recitals of the songs of Fauré,
Schumann, Schubert and leading British composers such
as Britten, Gurney and Warlock.
Many of their recordings of Lieder
and English songs - notably their acclaimed interpretation
of the Schubert song cycle Die schöne Müllerin
- have become essential collectors' items. Their
latest CD is Play the Game, featuring Victorian and
Edwardian sporting songs (Just Accord Music, May 2001).
Jennifer has accompanied many
distinguished artists. She is also much in demand
as an adjudicator by major music colleges and festivals
and as a coach for young and established accompanists,
solo singers, choir and professional singing groups.
