James Oxley (Tenor)

Born: England

The English tenor, James Oxley, studied at the Royal College of Music in London and at Oxford. In 1994 he was awarded first prize at the International Vocal Competition in Holland.

Since then, James Oxley has performed at the leading concert halls in Europe and further afield. A versatile performer, he has sung the principal roles in operas by Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Strauss and Benjamin Britten. He also sings liturgical music and oratorios from the Baroque period. He sang the role of the Evangelist in J.S. Bach’s Matthäus-Passion (BWV 244) with Philippe Herreweghe in a performance broadcast throughout Europe. In June 2004 he performed the role of the Evangelist in J.S. Bach’s Matthäus-Passion (BWV 244) conducted by Hermann Max at the Israel Festival Jerusalem. Another of his special interests is French music, where he enjoys a fruitful collaboration with conductors including Herviquet, Christophe Rousset, Martin Gester and Jean-Claude Malgoire. He has sung the roles of Lensky (Eugene Onegin) and Belmonte (Die Entführung) at the Opera de Rennes, Lucano in Monteverdi’s Poppea at English National Opera, and Ferrando (Così fan tutte), Steersman (Der Fliegende Holländer) and the title role in Candide at the Opera de Rouen. He is a member of the group The Factory, an experimental theatre company in London.

James Oxley regularly gives master-classes and is a visiting professor at the Royal College of Music, London.
