Firstof four con­certs in their North Amer­i­can Tour (Sher­brooke, Mon­treal, Toronto, New York)

Ital­ian madri­gals, He­brew prayers and the in­stru­men­tal mu­sic of Salomone Rossi (1570-1630). Re­cip­i­ent of the York Early Mu­sic In­ter­na­tional Artist Com­pe­ti­tion in 2011, the en­sem­ble was founded in Galilea by Elam Rotem. Based in Switzer­land, the quin­tet fo­cuses on reper­toire from the 16th and early 17th cen­turies and aims to cre­ate vivid and ex­pres­sive per­for­mances for au­di­ences to­day. The mu­sic of Salomone Rossi has played an im­por­tant role in the works of the Pro­feti since its in­cep­tion. The singers, who per­form in the He­brew, spe­cial­ize in Ital­ian Baroque mu­sic and found an im­me­di­ate con­nec­tion to the Jewish Ital­ian com­poser. This cur­rent tour of North Amer­ica will take them namely to the MOMA in New York.
