PROFETI DELLA QUINTA
Formed in 2002, Profeti della Quinta is a wonderfully accomplished Israeli male classical vocal ensemble based in Basel. A focus of the singers are works by Salamone Rossi (1570-1630), who, in Mantua, composed both Italian madrigals and music on Hebrew texts intended for the synagogue, the first published music of its kind. A 45 minute documentary film, Hebreo: The Search for Salomone Rossi (2012), will be seen alongside the performance.
