Jozik Kotz - baritone, Will Hancox - piano
This recital of songs and piano solos by Jozik Kotz and William Hancox explores music written around the time of the Great War, featuring composers as diverse as Gurney, Butterworth, Faure, Debussy, Granados, and Richard Strauss.
Jozik Kotz has performed throughout Europe including at the ENO, the Royal Opera and Glyndebourne. Recordings include the premieres of Turnage’s The Silver Tassie and Gavin Bryar’s Dr. Ox’s experiment for Deutsche Gramophon and the Paray Mass with the Royal Scottish orchestra which was nominated for a Grammy Award. He has appeared as a soloist at the Proms, with the BBC Symphony, the London Philharmonic and the English Chamber Orchestra.
William Hancox has wide ranging musical interests including solo playing, chamber music, duo work and vocal coaching. His recent trip to China typifies his breadth of approach, with masterclasses for both singers and pianists. He has issued a number of CDs including the complete Moericke Songs by Hugo Wolf and has premiered new works at the Cheltenham Festival and at the South Bank.
