Ágnes Kovács and Elisabeth Scholl

Elisabeth Scholl started her carrier as the member of the choir Kiedricher Chorbuben. At university she studied musicology and English literature. She began voice training with Professor Eduard Wollitz later specialising in early music and historical performance at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (also studied with René Jacobs). This is where she developed her ongoing interest for researching libraries for unpublished music manuscript. Her numerous CD-recordings from the early baroque to the romantic period testify to her stylistic diversity.
Elisabeth Scholl has been invited as soloist to several major European festivals (such as the Schleswig-Holstein Musik-Festival, Rheingau Musik Festival, Lufthansa Festival in London, Festwochen Luzern, Festival van Vlaanderen, Händel-Festspiele in Halle, Göttingen und Karlsruhe, BBC Proms) and has performed with conductors like René Jacobs, Jos van Immerseel, Frieder Bernius, Enoch zu Guttenberg, Bruno Weil, Nicholas McGegan, Sir Neville Marriner.
She is regularly invited to song recitals, and has been performing at the Aalto-Theater in Essen (Countess in Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, in the summer residence of Caio Vivaldi Ottone), in the Berlin State Opera (Haydn, Il mondo della luna) and in the Vlaamse Opera of Gent (Mozart, Donna Elvira). Elisabeth Scholl was Professor for Baroque Singing at Nuremberg between 2009-18, and between 2016-17 at the University of Music in Weimar. Since 2018 she has been Professor at the Mainz School of Music, where she teaches singing and will took over the artistic direction of the Baroque Vocal Academy’s excellence program in April 2021.
