Biography
Andrew Foster-Williams

Bass-baritone Andrew Foster-Williams enjoys a vibrant career on both opera and concert stages, his vocal versatility allowing him to present repertoire ranging from classics by J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Mozart, and Weber to works of Romantic and neoclassical masters such as Berlioz, Britten, RichardStrauss, Stravinsky, and Wagner. He has appeared on major stages with the most celebrated orchestras and conductors of our day, including The Cleveland Orchestra with Franz Welser-Möst, The Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Salzburg Mozarteum with Ivor Bolton, San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra with Richard Egarr, Hong Kong Philharmonic under Edo de Waart, and the London Symphony Orchestra with Colin Davis.

Recent highlights include Christoph Loy’s new production of Weber’s Euryanthe at Theater an der Wien conducted by Constantin Trinks, Barbora Horáková Joly’s new production of Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande at Theater Basel led by Erik Nielsen, and a new production of Wagner’s Lohengrin at La Monnaie directed by Olivier Py under the baton of Alain Altinoglu. In concert, he has joined Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic for Brahms’s A German Requiem, Vladimir Jurowski and the London Philharmonic Orchestra for Haydn’s The Seasons, and Lorenzo Viotti and the Gulbenkian Orchestra for semi-staged performances of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette.

Boasting an extensive discography, Andrew Foster-Williams’s commercially available releases include Beethoven’s Cantata on the Death of Emperor Joseph II with the San Francisco Symphony (led by Tilson Thomas), Haydn’s The Seasons with the London Symphony Orchestra (C. Davis) and with the Gabrieli Consort & Players (Paul McCreesh), and Gilbert & Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore with the Orchestra of Scottish Opera (Egarr). Performances captured for DVD include a Gramophone Award–winning production of Purcell’s The Fairy Queen with Glyndebourne Festival Opera (William Christie) and Rossini’s Guillaume Tell (Antonio Fogliani).
