Nussbaum, Walter; Schola Heidelberg; Schola Heidelberg, female section; Rotschopf, Michael
The Schola Heidelberg covers a wide range of musical styles in its new GENUIN CD with works from the Renaissance and today. Under the title "Eros und Gewalt" (Eros and Violence), the virtuoso vocal ensemble juxtaposes works by Gesualdo di Venosa and Michelangelo Rossi with those by Claude Vivier. Neurobiologist Hannah Monyer explains the psychological background of the emotionally charged music, in which Italy from around 1600 and our time find themselves very close to each other. The Schola Heidelberg sings under the direction of its founder Walter Nußbaum. It is one of the leading European vocal ensembles, mastering a wide variety of styles and vocal techniques, including microtonal intonation and vocal and breathing sounds.
