Slovak bass Jozef Benci, who gained critical acclaim for his “velvety timbre and an open, expressive voice” in a performance of Dvořák’s Requiem at the Musikverein Vienna, has been a member of the ensemble of the Slovak National Theater in Bratislava since 2004.

His recent performances include three concerts featuring Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass with the orchestra of the Academia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia Rome under Jakub Hrůša.

Jozef Benci performed the bass part in Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass at Berliner Philharmonie in 2018 and for a CD recording for the Supraphon label (2013). In 2017 he had great success in Halevys La Juive in a production by Peter Konwitschny. For a recording with the BBC, Benci sang Filip in Dvořák’s The Jacobin or Kecal of Smetana’s The Bartered Bride at the London Barbican Center with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Jiří Bělohlávek, later Verdi’s Messa da Requiem under Nello Santi followed by appearances with Edita Gruberova in Lucrezia Borgia and Anna Bolena.
