“I believe as a countertenor you need to have a stable psyche”

Reading time: 1 min. Arvo Pärt

There's a certain kind of modesty, and the willingness to take a risk in reducing the composotorial tools, to focus on the essence of the piece.

Andreas Scholl, world-famous countertenor, recently gave an interview to the Australian daily newspaper The Age, talking about his upcoming performances at the City Recital Hall in Sidney on October 4, 5, 8 and 9 with the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

Among the works performed will be Arvo Pärt’s Wallfahrtslied, Es sang vor langen Jahren, Alfred Schnittke’s String Quartet No. 3 and pieces by Vivaldi and Bach.
