Join the Edmonton Chamber Music Society as they feature Profeti della Qunita's presentation of The Songs of Salomon HaShirim asher liShlomo on Tuesday, February 1, 2022 at 7:30PM at Robertson-Wesley United Church, 10209 123 Street NW
Ensemble Profeti della Quinta was founded in the Galilee region of Israel by the bass singer and harpsichordist Elam Rotem, and is based in Basel, Switzerland, where its members undertook further studies of early music at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Focusing on repertoire from the 16th and early 17th centuries, the ensemble aims to create vivid and expressive performances for audiences today while, at the same time, considering period performance practices. Another goal of the ensemble is performing and researching hitherto neglected works, such as Emilio de' Cavalieri's Lamentations (1600) and Salomone Rossi's Hashirim asher li'Shlomo (1623), the first publication of polyphony in Hebrew.
This program portrays the many-faceted art of Salomone Rossi, who was a court composer in the service of the Gonzaga family and a uniquely innovative composer of Jewish liturgical music. The music of Salomone Rossi has played a significant role in the work of Profeti della Quinta since the group’s foundation. The native Hebrew speaking singers, who specialize in the music of the Italian Baroque, have an immediate connection to Salomone Rossi as a Jewish Italian composer.
