Past year's Easter Concert of the Bach Consort Vienna, conducted by Ruben Dubrovsky in the Basilica of Klosterneuburg Monastery, featured works by Antonio Vivaldi, which he composed during his engagement with the orphanage Ospedale della Pieta in Venice. The young girls growing up there received early musical training, which led the choir and orchestra of the Ospedale to become internationally acclaimed. This concert recording by Bach Consort Vienna with soloists Andreas Scholl, alto, Hanna Herfurtner and Joowon Chung, soprano and the Salzburg Bach Choir combines instrumentals like the Sonata a quatro in E-flat major «Al Santo Sepolcro», RV 130 and the Concerto in G minor, RV 156 with the liturgical works Stabat Mater, RV 621 and Gloria, RV 589, written for Easter.
Bach Consort Vienna
Founded in 1999, the Bach Consort Vienna under the baton of Rubén Dubrovsky soon grew into one of the most important Baroque Ensembles of Austria. Next to several performances at the Vienna Musikverein, the ensemble is ever-present on different European concert stages. Internationally renowned artists, such as Bernarda Fink and Christophe Coin, are closely connected to the Bach Consort Vienna as guest soloists. www.osterkonzert.at

Scholl has performed concerts with the Berlin Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Academy of Ancient Music. In 2005, he performed at the Last Night of the Proms in London - as the first countertenor in the history of the Proms. www.andreasscholl.org

Joowon Chung (soprano) discovered her love of singing already as a child. After attending a school offering music education, she studied vocal performance at the Seoul National University with Hyunju Yoon.

There, she was part of the the voice classes of Prof. Christiane Hossfeld and Prof. Christine Hesse.
