Kyle Stegall’s performances around the world have been met with accolade for his “blemish-free production” (Sydney Morning Herald), “lovely tone and ardent expression” (NY Times), as well as his “lively and empathetic delivery” (San Francisco Classical Voice). An artist who communicates equally well on concert, opera, and recital stages, his performances are characterized by an unfailing attention to style and detail, and a brutally honest approach to communication.
Mr. Stegall’s successful solo debuts in Japan, Australia, Vienna, Italy, Singapore, and Canada as well as on major stages across America have been in collaboration with many of the world’s most celebrated artistic directors including Manfred Honeck, Joseph Flummerfelt, William Christie, Nicholas McGegan, Masaaki Suzuki and Jeffrey Thomas, among others.
Heard frequently as evangelist and tenor soloist in the passions and cantatas of J.S. Bach, Mr. Stegall's Lincoln Center debut as evangelist in Bach's St. John Passion was hailed as "the most impressive by far" by the NY Times. Other concert work also figures prominently in Mr. Stegall’s seasons including the oratorios of Handel and Haydn, the great masses of Mozart and Beethoven, and works from the Bel Canto and 20th century concert canon.
Holding a special relationship with the music of Benjamin Britten, Mr. Stegall was twice invited to participate as a fellow at the Aldeburgh Music Festival, in the composer’s hometown of Suffolk, England. There he performed in recital and studied Britten song and Schubert lieder under the guidance of Ian Bostridge and Malcolm Martineau. Kyle has been heard in recital singing all of the composer’s cycles for tenor, including Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings.
A dedicated proponent of the song recital, as well as being a frequent guest artists on recital series, Mr. Stegall personally curates and produces recitals each season which reveal the vast colors and emotional range the collected repertoire has to offer.
Praised for possessing an “ability to absorb viewers into the action, something which is rarely achieved in opera,” (SF Classical Voice) Mr. Stegall has become a popular choice for the leading lyric tenor roles in the works of Mozart as well as in operas of the Bel Canto era.
