Luke Green was catapulted into the world of international music making by conductor Ivor Bolton, following studies at London' Royal Academy of Music. He has performed frequently at the Salzburg Festival, the Opera Houses of the Bayerisches Staatsoper in Munich, Amsterdam, Strasbourg, Zürich and Glyndebourne; future engagements include the Teatro Real in Madrid, and the Franfurt Opera. Luke has a particular affinity with the voice and has coached both students and professionals alike in music stretching from the beginning of opera, to Rossini, Donizetti and even Verdi; and anything in between. He has recently embarked on a recording project to present the music of Dr Maurice Greene, an English Baroque Composer contemporary with Handel, to a wider audience. From tenor Fabio Trümpy, studying Telemaco for I'll Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria (Monteverdi): 'es ist wie ein spannende Reise, wie weit man gehen kann: Luke Green...hat mich in den ersten musikalischen Proben immer wieder dazu ermutigt, innerhalb einer Phrase mehr zu wagen', Opernhaus Zürich Magazine, May 2014 p23 What the critics have said: GREENE Spenser’s Amoretti: "...el fortepiano dúctil, dramático y teatral de Luke Green, que ya fuera un excelente continuista al clave en Alcina." Louis Gogol, El País, 13th January 2016 “Some of the songs are sensational…instrumentalists Luke Green and Giangiacomo Pinardi are stellar, gracefully animating Spenser’s words.” -Berta Joncus, BBC Music Magazine March 2013   “[Hulett’s] light, perfectly tuned tone seems absolutely right for this repertory. His diction is impeccable, as is his effortless communication of the shape and phraseology of Spenser’s verse… Luke Green’s harpsichord accompaniments underpin the vocal line with delicate propriety…this recording succeeds on all fronts… it leaves me wanting to hear more of Benjamin Hulett and Maurice Greene.” -Simon Heighes, IRR February 2013   “Benjamin Hulett gives a good and committed account of [the sonnets]…he is firmly backed by a continuo team who vary the textures intelligently. An interesting find, this.” -Lindsay Kemp, Gramophone February 2013   “[Spenser’s]  Amoretti, written in 1738, were originally written for soprano and continuo, but transfer seamlessly to tenor; here they receive beautiful and impassioned performances by Benjamin Hulett, whose limpid and agile voice is perfect for this music…[Luke Green] and Giangiacomo Pinardi make an excellent continuo team, whose realisations both are tasteful and expertly matched to the varying moods of each sonnet.” 4* -AH, Early Music Today, December 2012
