In a coup for Australian label ABC Classics & Jazz, the Vienna Boys’ Choir has recorded a brand new studio album, exclusive to the label, just in time for their National tour to Australia in October and November. This extraordinary recording will feature the newly commissioned work that will be premiered by the choir in Australia, by Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin.
Experience the beauty of twenty-four of the world’s youngest voices in one of the world's oldest musical traditions. For more than 500 years the Vienna Boys Choir (or Wiener Sängerknaben) has been an enduring symbol of Europe, having worked with composers such as Fux, Salieri, Haydn and Bruckner and conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Leonard Bernstein, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Sir George Solti.
The choir is one of the world’s most active musical ensembles and performs over 300 concerts a year. While providing the music for the Sunday Mass in Vienna’s Imperial Chapel - which they have done since 1498! - the choir also tours internationally, performing each year in some of the world’s finest concert halls.
This stunning new recording also includes works by Bach, Mozart, Schumann, Schubert and many more.
