Stuart Jackson

Tenor

“The best of it, though, was wonderfully intimate and confessional, a mood struck superbly by young tenor Stuart Jackson. Bearlike in figure, strikingly rapt in voice, his opening 'Comfort ye' was electric and he was superbly attentive to the switches in emotional register in Charles Jennens’s heartfelt libretto. Every word compelled attention.”

Neil Fisher, The Times

Stuart Jackson was a choral scholar at Christ Church, Oxford, studying Biological Sciences, before completing his training at the Royal Academy of Music in 2013 where he studied with Ryland Davies. He won prizes at both the Wigmore Hall/Kohn Foundation International Song Competition and at the International Hugo Wolf Lied Competition in Stuttgart and has since given recitals for the BBC, at Wigmore Hall, the Oxford Lieder Festival and at the Albertina Musiksaal in Vienna.
