German counter-tenor and Baroque specialist Andreas Scholl performs with the Australian Chamber Orchestra in early October. A singer from the age of 7, he has sung with major ensembles all around the world and created an extensive discography which has won numerous wards including the Diapason d’Or, several Gramophone Awards, the Choc du Mond de la Musique, the ECHO award and Prix de l’Union de la Presse Musicale Belge.
The ACO says that with the repertoire in this concert series, “Scholl fulfils a longheld desire to match contemporary music with the Baroque. Arvo Pärt’s vocal lines are as consoling and ideal for the intense beauty of Scholl’s voice as Vivaldi’s.”
