Ferrier Award Winners Showcase

Songs by Debussy and his contemporaries

Continuing our recent tradition of showcasing a Kathleen Ferrier Award winner, it is with special pleasure that we provide a platform to winner of the First Prize 2017 and Royal College of Music graduate, Julien van Mellaerts. In addition to his triumph at the Ferrier Awards, at which his pianist Gamal Khamis scooped the coveted Accompanist’s Prize, Julien went on to win the most recent Wigmore Hall International Song Competition, placing his star firmly in the Lieder firmament.

‘A beautiful voice is not enough to animate a recital, and animation was what the New Zealand baritone Julien Van Mellaerts and the British pianist Gamal Khamis brought to their Schumann, Britten, Tchaikovsky and Debussy, alert to the specifics of style, language and character in each miniature narrative. No surprise that Van Mellaerts, witty and wiry-toned, walked away with the top prize.’ The Times on the final of the Wigmore Hall Song Competition.
