Timothy Bentch Zurück
Tenor Timothy Bentch was raised on a farm in Missouri where his first singing
experiences took place in the local Mennonite church and practicing scales on
the tractor and in the silo.  After undergraduate studies at the University of
Missouri, and a masters at the Curtis Institute of Music, he became a pastor at an
inner city church in Richmond, Virginia and since then has divided his time
between his two passions – singing and preaching.

These two passions eventually led him to Hungary where he lived for twelve
years.  While working in a variety of ministries, including helping to plant a new
church and founding the Crescendo Summer Institute of the Arts, he developed
a significant career, singing in all the leading venues of Hungary with numerous
television and radio broadcasts and performances for prime ministers and
presidents.  His many opera appearances were lauded by critics who called him
“a treasure in today’s Hungarian musical life.”  At the Hungarian State Opera he
premiered new productions as Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni, Belmonte in The
Abduction, and Nencio in L’Infeldelta delusa by Haydn.  Other roles with the
Hungarian State Opera include Ferrando in Cosi fan tutte, Tamino in The Magic
Flute, Tito in La Clemenza di Tito and Alfredo in La Traviata.  His performed opera
repertoire of over 35 roles also includes such roles as Mozart’s Mitridate, Nemorino
in L’Elisir d’amore, Edguardo in Lucia, Ismaele in Nabucco, Fenton in Falstaff, Tom
Rakewell in The Rake’s Progress, four roles by Benjamin Britten, and numerous
baroque operas – Jupiter in Semele, Nero in The Coronation of Poppea,
Monteverdi’s Ulyssis, and Orfeo – a performance that marked the opening of the
new theater in the Budapest Palace of the Arts in 2005.  His opera performances
have taken him to many other countries including tours of the Netherlands, the
UK, and Germany.  Recently he had successes in France singing Tamino in the
Magic Flute with the opera houses of Reims, Vichy, and Avignon.  In November of
2006 he was featured as special guest in the Mozart Festival of the Hungarian
State Opera in Budapest performing Titus, Belmonte, and Don Ottavio.

In symphonic repertoire, he has performed all the standard repertoire from
renaissance and baroque to the large works of Mahler and Verdi.  Highlights
have included the Evangelists in the Bach Passions, Mahler’s 8th Symphony
which he recorded for Naxos, and the Dream of Geronius by Elgar.  In 2005 he
was awarded the Artijus Prize in recognition of his contribution to modern
Hungarian works following the premiere performance of Funeral Rites by Zoltan
Jeney.  He has sung with the philharmonic orchestras of Lille, Strasbourg, Avignon,
Saint Petersburg, Sofia, Warsaw, the Israeli Chamber Orchestra, and appears
regularly with the Hungarian National Philharmonic.  He has sung under the
baton of Zoltán Kocsis, János Fürst, Ádám Fischer, Tamás Vásáry, János Kovács,
John Nelson, Casadesus, Antoni Witt, and György Vashegyi.
