The finest a cappella vocal group you’ll hear this year. Be swept away by the gorgeous harmonies of sacred Renaissance music, romantic works of the 18th and 19th centuries and light-hearted folk songs. This internationally acclaimed a cappella group owes much of its success, and its rich, engrossing sound, to Bach. They first met as choirboys at his old stomping ground in Leipzig and you can hear the influence manifest in a beautifully romantic sound that’s unique to the city: warm, deep and layered. Hear resounding and powerful interpretations of Renaissance madrigals, works by the great composers from the 18th and 19th Centuries, and new versions of folk songs from around the world.

Amarcord are: Wolfram Lattke: tenor | Martin Lattke: tenor | Franz Ozimek: baritone | Daniel Knauft: bass | Holger Krause: bass

This all male group will be offering a variety of repertoire from renaissance madrigals to part-songs from the 19th and 20th centuries together with folk songs from around the world.
