American tenor Nicholas Phan continues to distinguish himself as one of the most compelling young tenors appearing on the prestigious concert and opera stages of the world today. Praised by National Public Radio as ‘an artist who must be heard’, Phan’s album for Avie, album Gods & Monsters was nominated for the 2017 Best Classical Solo Vocal Album Grammy Award. His other albums for Avie, Illuminations, A Painted Tale, Still Falls the Rain and Winter Words have all made many ‘Best of ’ lists, including those in The New York Times, New Yorker, Toronto Star, Chicago Tribune and Boston Globe.
His growing discography also includes the Grammy-nominated recording of Stravinsky’s Pulcinella with Pierre Boulez and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Bach’s St John Passion with Jeannette Sorrell and Apollo’s Fire, Scarlatti’s La gloria di Primavera and Handel’s Joseph and his Brethren with Nicholas McGegan and Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, an album of Bach’s secular cantatas with Masaaki Suzuki and Bach Collegium Japan, the opera L’Olimpiade with the Venice Baroque Orchestra, Berlioz’s Roméo et Juliette with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, and the world premiere recording of Elliott Carter’s orchestral song cycle A Sunbeam’s Architecture. An artist with an incredibly diverse repertoire that ranges from Claudio Monteverdi to Nico Muhly and beyond, he performs regularly with the world’s leading orchestras and opera companies. Phan is also an avid recitalist and a passionate advocate for art song and vocal chamber music: in 2010, Phan co-founded Collaborative Arts Institute of Chicago, an organization devoted to promoting this underserved corner of the classical music repertoire.
