Bostridge/Uchida, Barbican, London

By Richard Fairman
In his year-long series “Homeward Bound” at the Barbican, Ian Bostridge has appeared in many guises. He has played the Evangelist in Bach’s St John Passion , the title role in Mozart’s Idomeneo , late-night cabaret artist, and tragic Captain Vere in Britten’s Billy Budd (a live CD recording taken from the concert performances has just been released).
