The Neue Vocalsolisten was established as an ensemble specializing in the interpretation of contemporary vocal music in 1984. Founded under the artistic management of Musik der Jahrhunderte, the vocal chamber ensemble has been artistically independent since the year 2000.
The New Vocalsolisten comprises seven concert and opera soloists, with a collective range reaching from coloratura soprano over counterteno! r to “basso profondo”. Through its unique artistic creativity, the Ensemble shapes its work on chamber music and forms its collaborations with composers and other interpreters. Their partners are specialist ensembles and radio orchestras, opera houses and the free theatre scene, electronic studios and countless organizers of contemporary music festivals and concert series in the world.
The Ensemble’s chief interest lies on research: exploring new sounds, new vocal techniques and new forms of articulation, whereby great emphasis is placed on establishing a dialogue with composers. Each year, the ensemble premiers about twenty new works. Central to the Ensemble’s artistic concept are the areas of music theatre and the interdisciplinary work with electronics, video, visual arts and literature, as well as the juxtaposition of contrasting elements found in ancient and contemporary music.
Neue Vocalsolisten's Concert and Lecture, as part of the! 5th International Pharos Contemporary Music Festival, are supported by the Region of Baden-Württemberg, Musik der Jahrhunderte and the Goethe Institut Cyprus.
