A graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and The Royal Conservatoire of The Hague, baritone Dr David Greco has worked in the cutting edge of Historically Informed Performance in Europe. He has performed regularly with The Academy of Ancient Music and Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, and has appeared as a principle in the world’s most exciting opera festivals such as Festival Aix-en Provence and Glyndebourne Festival Opera.
In 2014, he became the first Australian appointed a position with the Sistine Chapel Choir in the Vatican, Rome.
David regularly appears as a soloist with Australia’s finest ensembles and orchestras, such as the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Australian Chamber Orchestra and most recently with Sydney Symphony in their Helpmann Award-winning concerts of Bach’s cantata for bass, Ich habe genug. In 2017, he was a principle artist with Opera Australia appearing in The Eighth Wonder and The Love of Three Oranges. His recent appearance as Seneca in Pinchgut Opera’s production of The Coronation of Poppea received critical acclaim.
David has an impressive catalogue of solo recordings spread across a variety of labels, including ‘Poems of Love & War’, featuring arias by New Zealand composer Jack Body on the Naxos Label.
In 2018 David released his debut recording with ABC Classics label of Schubert’s Winterreise with keyboardist Erin Helyard. This year he will complete the Schubert song cycle trilogy when he makes the first Australian period-instrument recordings of Die Schöne Müllerin & Schwanengesang on the same label.
2020 will see David release two contrasting recital disks of Bach Cantatas for Bass, one with Australian early music ensemble Van Diemen’s Band, and the second with Dutch based Luthers Bach Ensemble on the European label Brilliant Classics.
David is also an active researcher into historical nineteenth-century voice and has recently completed his PhD at Melbourne University.
