“The three men all displayed a strikingly instinctual feeling for the deeply sensuous nature of Purcell’s music…Joshua Hopkins too never let the thickness of his voice overcome the ornamented lines, all the while keeping them melodic and simple…In the fourth canticle, evoking the journey of the three Magi, Britten uses a trio of singers.  Bostridge, Davies, and Hopkins blended masterfully…”  New York Classical Review, Sophia Vastek, October 21, 2013.

“He was joined in two of them by equally impressive colleagues: the countertenor Iestyn Davies…and the baritone Joshua Hopkins…Mr. Bostridge, Mr. Davies and Mr. Hopkins gave a superb performance.”  The New York Times, Anthony Tommasini, October 22, 2013.

Zankel Hall welcomed three superb artists to sing Britten’s music. Tenor Ian Bostridge…Countertenor Iestyn Davies…and Baritone Joshua Hopkins.  These gentlemen of song joined voices for a lovely evening accompanied on the piano by Julius Drake…Mr. Hopkins sang with wonderful expression of the text, moving authentically to the emotions.
