About Randall Scotting

Randall Scotting, countertenor and PhD candidate at the Royal College of Music (London), is in the final stages of completing his thesis, titled: ‘Senesino in context, 1707-1740: composers, reception, and elements of voice and drama.’  He is interested in both theory and practice and his research is largely focused on eighteenth-century Italian opera, castrato singers, and seventeenth- and eighteenth-century singers' vocal and musico-dramatic facility as evidenced in extant source documents and manuscripts.  A previous Fulbright Scholar in Budapest, Scotting researched and performed Hungarian folk music addressing its influences on modern classical composers including György Ligeti and Béla Bartók.  Additionally, Scotting has been invited to present on the countertenor voice at festivals in Tasmania, Sacramento, Fort Worth, and London.  

As performer Randall has worked with companies including the Santa Fe Opera, New York Philharmonic, Seattle Opera, Bath International Music Festival, and many others.  He can be heard on recording in Antonio Caldara’s oratorio Santo Stefano and in Vivaldi’s Ercole sul Termodonte with il Complesso Barocco from the Spoleto Festival in Italy, among others.
