Alex Potter  

Alex Potter  Countertenor soloist ALEX POTTER is a much sought-after interpreter of 17th- and 18th-century music, whose work takes him all over Europe. He has performed with conductors in- cluding Philippe Herreweghe, Thomas Hengelbrock, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Jordi Savall, Frieder Bernius, Philippe Pierlot, Paul Goodwin, Peter Neumann, Roland Wilson, Rudolf Lutz and Stephan MacLeod. Alongside numerous performances of works by Bach, Handel and other established composers, he takes particular interest in seeking out and singing lesser-known repertoire for use in concerts and recordings under his own direction. After beginning his musical career as a chorister at Southwark Cathedral, Alex Potter was a Choral Scholar, and read Music at New College, Oxford. He went on to pursue further study in singing and baroque performance practice at the Schola Cantorum in Basel with Gerd Türk, taking additional classes with Evelyn Tubb. Amongst his discography are Heinrich Schütz's Schwanengesang with Philippe Herreweghe and Collegium Vocale Gent, and Handel's Joshua with Peter Neumann and the Cologne Chamber Choir. In addition, he has made two solo recordings - one of music by Johann Rosenmüller with Chelycus on the Ramée label, and another of motets by Jan Dismas Zelenka with Capriccio Barockorchester for Pan Classics.
