Biography

Timothy Reynolds – Tenor

Tenor Timothy Reynolds is a highly versatile and internationally regarded performer. Since beginning his career as a Young Artist at Victorian Opera (2012-2013), he has come to be regarded as one of Australia’s ‘finest tenors’, performing with ‘clarity and drama’ (Classikon), and with a musicality recognised by critics and audiences alike. In addition to being an early music specialist, he is in demand as both an opera and concert artist.

Timothy regularly appears as an oratorio and cantata soloist, and has become known for his dramatic and intelligent performances as ‘The Evangelist’ in Bach’s St John Passion. He performs often as a soloist with Australia’s major early music ensembles, including the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Ludovico’s Band, La Compañia, St John’s Southgate, Melbourne Bach Choir, and in December of 2019 will debut with Pinchgut Opera. Regularly involved in the development and performance of new Australian works, Timothy notably received a 2013 Green Room Award for Best Ensemble for his portrayal of ‘Bill Barnacle’ in Calvin Bowman and Anna Goldsworthy’s The Magic Pudding with Victorian Opera – a role that he had the pleasure to revisit in 2018. Notable performances as a concert and recital soloist include Die Winterreise and Die Schöne Müllerin with Darryl Coote for The Team of Pianists, and appearances with Melbourne Symphony Orchestra under conductors Simone Young and Sir Andrew Davis.

From 2014 – 2016, Timothy was based in Europe, where he was a member of London’s Opera Holland Park ensemble, and covered a number of roles at Germany’s prestigious Oper Stuttgart. He made his debut as ‘Don Ottavio’ in Don Giovanni for Hampstead Garden Opera (London), and performed the title role in Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In 2015, he performed as a soloist for The Gesualdo Consort in Amsterdam, and the Internationale Bach Akademie Stuttgart’s Italian tour. Also in 2015, Timothy made his BBC Proms debut in the Choir of Enlightenment for the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and joined the Philharmonischer Chor Esslingen as a soloist in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

Timothy’s recent performances include ‘Ruodi’ in Rossini’s Guillaume Tell (2018) and ‘White Rabbit’ in Alice Through the Opera Glass (2019), both for Victorian Opera, and with Opera Australia as an Apprentice in Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (2018). Timothy has recently returned from an acclaimed 2019 concert tour of Sweden with vocal consort M-8. Upcoming engagements include Britten’s Cantata Misericordia (soloist) with Omega Ensemble in November, ‘Pompeo’ in Vivaldi’s Il Farnace for Pinchgut and Handel’s Messiah (soloist) with the Australian Chamber Choir and Scots Church (Melbourne) in December 2019.
