Voktett Hannover

Voktett Hannover
Voktett Hannover, a mixed double choir vocal ensemble, was founded by students at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media in 2012. The eight singers work in differing musical fields; they are united by their desire to both imbue prominent works of vocal music with a high level of musicality, and to make this sort of musical experience accessible to a broad audience. In their various programs, they dedicate themselves primarily to a cappella works which reflect the polyphonic vocal music of European music history in as multifaceted a way as possible. Their repertoire extends from the beginning of polyphonic vocal music to contemporary compositions.
With diverse a cappella programs, Voktett Hannover has been invited to sing at renowned concert series and festivals such as the International A-cappella-Week Hannover, the NDR Musikfest, Chor@Berlin, Bachfest Leipzig,, and the Stunde der Kirchenmusik Stuttgart. Since 2017, the ensemble has also regularly organized concerts with instrumental accompaniment. They have performed with oboist Albrecht Mayer at the Hitzacker Music Week and have sung St. John’s Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach at the Markuskirche Hannover.
Voktett Hannover won first place at the 2015 Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Conservatory Competition as well as first place at the 2018 Deutscher Chorwettbewerb. At the Deutscher Chorwettbewerb in Freiburg, the singers were awarded special prizes by the Walter and Charlotte Hamel Stiftung and by the label Rondeau Production. This prize includes the production and the release of this CD. As part of the 14th International A-cappella-Week Hannover, the ensemble participated in a masterclass with the internationally renowned vocal ensemble New York Polyphony in May 2014. In connection with the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Conservatory Competition, a CD for the award winner was produced in 2015 and presented by NDR Kultur and Deutschlandfunk Kultur, among others.
