Concentus Vocalis Wien (Choir)

Founded: Vienna, Austria

Concentus Vocalis Wien was founded as the ‘Jugendchor Hollabrun’ by its artistic director Herbert Böck in the lower Austrian wine-growing region and consists mainly of students and graduates of the Vienna College of music. The ensemble’s main strength and artistic activities lie in the performance of difficult unaccompanied works and of pieces for choir and chamber orchestra. The choir has been awarded many international prizes.

In addition to numerous radio and TV recordings and unaccompanied concerts in the Musikverein and Vienna’s Konzerthaus, highly acclaimed performances of great oratorios, cantatas and masses have offered the opportunity of working together with famous European orchestras and conductors, e.g. the Vienna Symphony Orchestra conducted by Christopher Hogwood and the English Camber Orchestra. In 1994 the choir toured Israel together with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

Concerts in 1995 included those during the ‘Hörgänge’ Festival in the Vienna Konzerthaus, the opening concert at the North Austrian Danube Festival (Orff: Carmina Burana) and the Upper Austrian Foundation Concerts (J.S. Bach’s Mass in B minor (BWV 232)), at the Haydn Festival in Eisenstadt (Haydn’s Il Ritorno di Tobia) and at the Kurt Weill Festival in Cologne (Rise and Fall of the Town of Mahagonny, Lindberg’s Flight).
