“The most important thing is the message of the music” says Andreas Scholl. “Without soul and spirit, the music just doesn’t sound”. If you’ve heard him before, you’ll know just how intensely one of the world’s leading countertenor lives those words. Together with Saffron Hall favourites The English Concert, he’ll bring his matchless vocal warmth and beauty to a concert with an English twist.
