Music from the twentieth century with countertenor Andreas Scholl and pianist Talmar Halperin. 'His voice quality is unquestionably masculine, astonishingly high, incredibly powerful, flexible and commanding', was the verdict of a reviewer on Amazon after hearing Andreas Scholl. Audiences and reviewers alike have given this German singer the credit for creating massive renewed interest in countertenor repertoire practically single-handed. There can be no doubt that Andreas Scholl has a particular ability to enthral and captivate concert-goers worldwide. His two most recent visits to the Bergen International Festival were no exception, when he sang to capacity audiences in Håkonshallen and received rave reviews. Andreas Scholl has released numerous award-winning and best-selling solo albums, and is best known for his interpretations of baroque music from Purcell onwards. He has however always been a devotee of new music and has composed himself. In this concert he presents a programme of twentieth century music, accompanied by his wife and musical partner Tamar Halperin. The Israeli pianist and harpsichordist is a soloist and chamber musician with a repertoire from the renaissance to the current day.  Andreas Scholl countertenor Tamar Halperin piano ARI FRANKEL (1960–) The Rest AARON COPLAND (1900–1990) The Little Horse At the River RALPH VAUGHAN- WILLIAMS (1872–1958) Silent Noon BENJAMIN BRITTEN (1913–1976) Sally Gardens Greensleeves AARON COPLAND (1900–1990) I bought me a Cat JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH (1685–1750) English Suite no 5 prelude (solo piano) RALPH VAUGHAN- WILLIAMS (1872–1958) Twilight People Tired JOSEPH TAWADROS (1983–) Bird of Space ARVO PÄRT (1935–) Es Sang vor langen Jahren RALPH VAUGHAN-WILLIAMS (1872–1958) In the Spring ALBAN BERG (1885–1935) Wo der Goldregen steht BENJAMIN BRITTEN (1913–1976) The Ash Grove ARVO PÄRT(1935–) Vater Unser ALBAN BERG (1885–1935) Vielgeliebte Schöne Frau Ferne Lieder JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH (1685–1750) Prelude & Fugue in C# Major (WTC Book II) (solo piano) Prelude & Fuguer in F# Major (WTC Book I) (solo piano)
