“a powerful, room-filling baritone who has the physical and vocal charisma to tame any wild woman”  Nordbayerische Kurier 

Baritone David John Pike has a widely varied repertoire covering early music, oratorio, symphonic, opera and commissioned works.  In his native Canada, in the UK and across Europe, he has worked with leading ensembles including Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London Philharmonic and the Schweizerkammerchor under the direction of Christophers, Dutoit, Jurowski, Marriner, Mehta, Rattle and Zinman. 

Mr. Pike recently made his role début to rave reviews as Marcello in Puccini's La Bohème in Bamberg, Germany; sang oratorios by Bach, Haydn, Handel and Mozart in Canada, Germany and Luxembourg; and more. Other recent engagements include performances for Les Azuriales Opéra in France; Mozart Requiem in Germany and Luxembourg; his début at La Philharmonie de Luxembourg performing Martinu's Prophecy of Isaiah; the title role in Mozart's Don Giovanni with Les Musiciens, Schaunard in la Bohème in Canada; Mahler's Kindertotenlieder at Dorchester Abbey, UK; and concerts featuring works of Vaughan Williams and Finzi, and Handel's Messiah at Kings Place, London with the Orchestra of St. John's under John Lubbock. Additional appearances include an open air opera gala with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg. 

 

In collaboration with Luxembourg's cultural broadcaster, Radio 100,7, and the generous support of the Vaughan Williams Charitable Trust, he and accompanist Isabelle Trüb recently completed a recording of English songs by Finzi, Quilter and Vaughan Williams.  The CD, entitled “Whither must I wander?” was released on Signum Records in December 2012.
