ANDREAS SCHOLL: Countertenor

Musica Viva Created by Musica Viva Plus

Andreas Scholl asks just one thing of his audiences – “Take a deep breath, let’s just sigh collectively and enjoy this beautiful music”.

The countertenor voice – a high male voice with a strong, almost instrumental tone – enjoyed a massive resurgence in popularity in the second half of the last century due to pioneers such as Alfred Deller and the increased popularity of Baroque opera. Yet no countertenor has had the same impact as Andreas Scholl, from the moment of his debut performance in 1993.

Scholl combines a natural voice of extraordinary purity with heartfelt passion for the repertoire

Andreas Scholl asks just one thing of his audiences – “Take a deep breath, let’s just sigh collectively and enjoy this beautiful music”.

The countertenor voice – a high male voice with a strong, almost instrumental tone – enjoyed a massive resurgence in popularity in the second half of the last century due to pioneers such as Alfred Deller and the increased popularity of Baroque opera. Yet no countertenor has had the same impact as Andreas Scholl, from the moment of his debut performance in 1993.

Scholl combines a natural voice of extraordinary purity with heartfelt passion for the repertoire he chooses. The joys of being a father and a newly invigorated sense of community since moving back to his home town add even greater warmth, depth and maturity to Scholl’s performances.

A respected specialist in Baroque, Renaissance and Mediaeval music, he also records pop songs and folk music. This is all perfectly natural to him, as long as he loves what he sings. For his third national concert tour with Musica Viva, Scholl has devised an intimate, poised program that balances the music of Purcell, ‘Master of English Song’, with two cantatas by the young Handel from his ‘Arcadian’ period in Rome. Scholl will be accompanied by outstanding Baroque specialists Tamar Halperin on harpsichord, cellist Daniel Yeadon and lutenist Tommie Andersson.
