Outstanding countertenor Andreas Scholl and Ensemble 1700 to perform at the Rector’s Palace

By  Aug 08, 2018

One of the world’s most outstanding countertenors Andreas Scholl will perform in the atrium of the Rector's Palace tonight at 9.30 pm with Ensemble 1700 as part of the 69th Dubrovnik Summer Festival Music Program. In the concert program, named Little Gifts of Heaven, the audience will have the opportunity to hear the works of Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi and George Frideric Händel.

On the occasion of the debut play at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, Andreas Scholl explained how did the co-operation with Dorothee Oberlinger, leader of Ensemble 1700, start: "I was very happy that I met Dorothee a few years ago, and in her and the members of the ensemble 1700 found soul mates. Apart from being the world's leading block-flutist, she is also a great model to her orchestra. The musical art that she, her ensemble and I share reaches the level of 'telepathic' communication between us. Expecting the musical idea and its spontaneous and synchronized realization, guarantees that every concert is up to its own new quality. I've heard a lot about Dubrovnik and the festival, but I've never got an opportunity to sing there. I am very happy to be playing this debut this summer in this beautiful city. "

The tickets for this amazing concert are avaliable online or at the location (in front of the Rector's Palace) two hours before the start of the concert.
