As a treble soloist, Matthew sang the role of Miles in Britten’s Turn of the Screw for Italian Opera houses. He studied music at the University of York and later at the RCM. Whilst there he was a Susan Chilcott Scholar and an RPS Young Artist. His solo appearances include the Boston Handel and Haydn society, RIAS Kammerchor Berlin, Copenhagen Philharmonic, Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla, Northern Sinfonia and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and the title role in Monteverdi's L’Orfeo with I Fagiolini. Matthew’s debut solo disc with the LPO and accompanist Malcolm Martineau, ‘Till the Stars Fall’, was released in 2015: gems from the English song repertoire alongside folk songs in celebration of some of Britain’s finest music. Matthew is a keen photographer and follower of wildlife conservation. He lives near Brighton with his daughter and wife, with whom he has released a series of original children’s music CDs.
