We can not wait to have the Hungarian choir Purcell Choir to sing both Gesualdo and Schütz, the closest thing we can call a hardcore choir repertoire!
The Purcell Choir was founded in 1990 in Budapest by György Vashegyi for the performance of Purcell’s Baroque opera Dido & Aeneas.
Few suspected at the time that the group was to become the most respected choir in Hungary fifteen years later. All the choir members are excellent professional singers, musicians and instrumentalists, and some of them are also members of other choirs and orchestras.
The core repertoire of the Purcell Choir ranges from works by Gesualdo to Mozart, but they also perform pieces by later composers.
