Ensemble Voces Suaves is delighted to invite you to its special birthday year in 2022

Our Vocal Ensemble was founded in 2012 and so this year we mark our tenth anniversary – a good reason to celebrate! In its first decade the ensemble has grown from a local, young group to an established ensemble which performs both in Switzerland and internationally on some of the most prestigious stages and festivals in the field of early music. 

Three composers who have been important to us in our first decade will accompany us through our birthday year. 2022 is also the 350th year of the death of Heinrich Schütz, and so we will not only be performing his moving Musicalishe Exequien (which we recorded in 2020 for Arcana to great critical acclaim) but also exploring his rarely performed secular works, including his virtuoso Italian madrigals. The second composer is the great Giaches de Wert of Mantua; a CD dedicated entirely to his late madrigals will be published this year on the Arcana label. The third is of course the one and only Claudio Monteverdi and his ground-breaking music which paved the way to the opera genre; we will conclude the year 2022 with performances of his magnificent Vespro della beata Vergine.
2021 saw us collaborating for the first time with the instrumental ensembles Capriccio Stravagante and Concerto Romano. We are excited to perform in 2022 for the first time with another wonderful international ensemble, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, as well as continue our musical friendship with Swiss based groups Concerto Scirocco and Capricornus consort. Our travels will take us to Belgium, Germany, France, the UK and more, without neglecting of course our home public in Switzerland. 

We look forward to celebrating our birthday with beautiful music and with you!
