Om Mark Tatlow
I am a freelance conductor, pianist (including historical keyboards), educator and—now—researcher.
Originally trained in musicology at Cambridge, and musical analysis in London, I studied the piano at the Royal Academy of Music and opera at the National Opera Studio.
I was associated for many years with Drottningholms Slottsteater, most recently as Artistic Director (2007-13), and was Professor of Musical Studies at the University College of Opera, Stockholm (2002-12). In 2013 I co-founded Performing Premodernity, a five-year research project based at the Department of Culture and Aesthetics at Stockholm University. Since 2002 I have worked in various part-time capacities at Lilla Akademien (the Junior Academy) in Stockholm, and am the school's Artistic Advisor.
Recent projects include compiling and conducting Georgiana, a new eighteenth-century opera pasticcio, commissioned for the 40th anniversary of the Buxton Festival (UK), conducting and staging Purcell's Dido and Aeneas for the Stift Festival (Holland); and conducting at the Trigonale Festival (Austria). Forthcoming projects include leading Performing Premodernity's Rousseau Double Bill (Pygmalion and Le Devin du Village) at Confidencen.
My doctoral research stems from questions that arise from performing Italian opera and other vocal music from the late Enlightenment era today.
