Henry Purcell, John Dowland, Tobias Hume
Jakob D. Rattinger
The countertenor Benno Schachtner is widely regarded as one of the most promising singers in his field. With a special focus on music of the German Baroque period, he is much in demand as a soloist with some of the best ensembles committed to historic performance practice. Conductors such as René Jacobs or Christoph Spering regularly enjoy working with him.
For this English program of songs by Dowland, Purcell, Johnson and Blow, Schachtner teams up with a small instrumental ensemble which provides an exquisite instrumental background to the rising star’s fine singing.
