The outstanding Hungarian harpsichordist Márton Borsányi recently returned to Hungary after living and working in Switzerland. It was there that he met the Brazilian singer Guilherme Roberto, an artist a few years younger than himself. They have selected their joint programme from often rarely heard vocal works from the composers of the 17th and 18th centuries focused on - in keeping with the Passover season - the idea of repentence and redemption, with other ones addressing the subject of love. Keyboard pieces will serve as the transitions between the songs.
Born in 1991 in São Paulo, Roberto earned a degree in solo voice and violin in the music faculty of his native city's university. He then went on to hone his skills at the Zurich University of the Arts. A singer and choirmaster, he is also a member of the World Youth Choir. His repertoire encompasses several centuries, ranging from early music to Romantic vocal works and contemporary Brazilian pieces. Márton Borsányi was born in Budapest in 1984. He earned his harpsichord degree in the early mus...ic department of the University of Music and Theatre Leipzig 'Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy' before going on to obtain a master's degree in continuo, ensemble conducting and historical improvisation from Basel's Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. He has been performing concerts of church music as a soloist and chamber musician for ten years, and he joined the faculty of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna in 2019. To compile this European panorama of Baroque music, the two artists have put together a programme of valuable rarities combined with genuine hits of early music, with the compositions by Giulio Caccini, John Dowland and Henry Purcell certainly counting among the latter.
