Christopher Foster - Press Reviews


Back to artist page

  • “… Christopher Foster and Andrew Slater, the voices of reason, completed this utterly outstanding cast, distinguished also by the audience being able to hear every word.”
    www.classicalsource.com (Britten: Curlew River)
  • “… The soloists were magnificent … ”
    Michael White, www.telegraph.co.uk (Britten: Curlew River)
  • “I doubt if this extraordinarily original masterpiece could have been better sung, or vocally characterised in any finer respect that that witnessed on this occasion. From the very beginning it was obvious that George Vass had chosen the cast wisely...”
    Robert Matthew-Walker - www.classicalsource.com
  • “Saturday's performance was well sung by the choir but was made far more attractive by the very fine singing of the soloists. In particular the Tuba Mirum was a dazzling performance by baritone Christopher Foster.”
    John Manning - St Albans Choral Society
  • “The highlights for me were the two duets: sopranos Ruth Jenkins and Christina Sampson in "The Lord is my strength" with its beautiful interlocking harmonies; and basses James Birchall and Christopher Foster (standing in at short notice) in "The Lord is a man of war"" with its dramatic interchanges.”
    Louth Choral Society - Israel in Egypt (Nov 2009)
  • “The rich baritone voice of Christopher Foster added a suitably Elgarian quality to the performance and provided an oasis of calm reflection in the Andante section.”
    Herts Advertiser - Elgar: Great is the Lord
  • “Thanks for your fantastic performance last night. I really enjoyed working with you and the feedback from the choir and audience has been terrific. ”
    Music Director, Michael Summers - May 11th, 2013: Elijah, Durham Cathedral
  • “... all four soloists provided compelling, exquisitely crafted solos, coming together in the Recordare to produce a positively operatic sound. ”
