Andreas Scholl had six thousand people on the edge of their seats when he sang Handel arias in the BBC Proms some years ago. The German counter-tenor has released several critically acclaimed recordings. His repertoire spans from opera and baroque music to folk tunes.

The Bergen International Festival concert opens with Purcell’s Music for a While (from Dryden and Lees Oedipus), which Scholl considers to be one of the greatest songs ever written. He is accompanied by the Israeli soloist and chamber musician Tamar Halperin.
