Nika Gorič soprano; Jonathan Ware piano

YCAT Lunchtime Concert


  • Nika Gorič soprano
  • Jonathan Ware piano

This summer Nika Goric joined Salzburg Festival’s Young Singers Project and performed the role of Norina (Don Pasquale) with Slovene National Theatre. She is currently completing her studies at the Royal Academy of Music. Jonathan Ware has won the Pianist’s Prize at the Wigmore Hall/Kohn Foundation International Song and Das Lied Competitions, and First Prize in the 2014 International Hugo Wolf Competition.

‘Easily the strongest and most finished showing came from Slovenian Nika Goric, deliciously crisp, pert and on the note as Suzman’s spunky Susanna’ The Times, The Marriage of Figaro, Royal Academy Opera, November 2015

‘How Ware forms words into the keys in his piano preludes and (especially) postludes, how his fine sound positively creeps into the words, and how he, for instance, advances the strophic and musical dénouement in Goethe's Ganymed: this is thrilling sorcery’ Stuttgarter Nachrichten, Hugo Wolf Akademie with Ludwig Mittelhammer, October 2015
