Star countertenor dives deep into the waters of folk song in a contemplative, spiritual programme

Andreas Scholl and his musical and life partner Tamar Helperin share a passion for folk music and for songs which have been wth us for hundreds of years,  passed down from generation to generation. These songs are characterised by their timeless simplicity and directness, and the way they cut straight to the heart.

 

Twilight People is the first release from Berlin label Modern Recordings (BMG). It features Scholl’s carefully-curated selection of songs, couched in the refined arrangements of some of the most important composers of the twentieth century: Benjamin Britten, Aaron Copland, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Alaban Berg, and Arvo Pärt. The selections also take in new works: one by Israeli composer Ari Frankel, another by Joseph Tawadrios, the Egyptian al-ud (a sort of Arab lute) virtuoso.

‘Quite a few new kids on the countertenor block have come around since Scholl began his career, but there can be few who have such purity of tone, quasi-angelic lyricism and directness of utterance as the German singer.’

Rudolfinum

Rudolfinum is one the most important neo-renaissance buildings in the Czech Republic. It was conceived as a multi-purpose cultural centre which emphasized its contem European significance. Designed by eminent Czech architects Josef Zítek and Josef Schulz, it became a cultural centre combining exhibition rooms with concert halls and a museum. The grand opening took place on 24 January 1885 in the presence of Crown Prince Rudolf, in whose honuour the building was named. In 1896, the first ever concert of the Czech Philharmonic took place in the main concert hall of Rudolfinum, conducted by composer Antonín Dvořák, after whom the hall is named.

Strings of Autumn has put on numerous concerts here, among them Cassandra Wilson, Daniel Hope, Brad Mehldau, Ahmad Jamal, Charles Lloyd, Lizz Wright, Hugh Masekela and many more.
