“Andreas Scholl has the world’s most cultured counter-tenor voice. And during his three Handel arias some 6,000 people scarcely dared breathe.” Richard Morrison in the Times (2005, reviewing the “Last Night of the Proms”) Born into a family of singers in Eltville on the Rhine, near Wiesbaden, Andreas Scholl’s early musical training was with the Kiedricher Chorbuben. He later went on to study under Richard Levitt and René Jacobs at the renowned Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. He is a winner of the 1999 Echo Awards and Prix de l’Union de la Presse Musicale Belge (“Young Musician of the Year”), the Baroque Vocal Prize at the 1996 Gramophone Awards and the Middle Ages/Renaissance category of the 2002 Edison Awards for his recording of A Musicall Banquet.
