Andreas Sholl has been praised as of one of the best countertenors of the present day and the leading interpreter of Baroque repertory. Born in Germany, Andreas Scholl's early musical training was with the Kiedricher Chorbuben. He later studied under Richard Levitt and René Jacobs at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Switzerland.

A Grammy nominated artist, he has won numerous awards and prizes including the prestigious ECHO Award for his composition The Emperor's New Clothes and The Nightingale released on Deutsche Grammphon.

In the mid 1990s Andreas Scholl began to build his reputation with several outstanding debuts in large scale vocal-instrumental works such as Handel’s oratorio Messiah and J. S. Bach’s Missa in B minor. His operatic debut took place at the 1998 Glyndebourne Festival Opera: it was the role of Bertarido in Handel’s Rodelinda which brought him recognition and acclaim from both press and audiences. He repeated this role in 2006 on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

Andreas Scholl performs regularly in productions of the biggest opera houses in the world, as well as on the concert stages. He has worked with conductors such as Philippe Herreweghe, René Jacobs, William Christie, Chiara Banchini, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Christophe Rousset and Paul McCreesh. He has recorded extensively for Decca, Deutsche Grammophon andharmonia mundi. In partnership with Edin Karamazov he released two albums:A Musicall Banquet – a collection of songs with lute and Wayfaring Stranger – a collection of folk songs.

Edin Karamazov was born in 1965 in Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina. A protégé of Sergiu Celibidache, he began his musical career as a classical guitarist before taking up the Baroque lute, which he studied with Hopkinson Smith at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basle, Switzerland.
Karamazov made his solo debut as a lutenist in 1998, stepping in at the last minute for the legendary Julian Bream. Since then he has established himself as today’s most exciting and charismatic player of the lute. His thrilling virtuoso performances on the lute and guitar, with a repertoire that ranges from 16th-century classics to the music of today, have garnered rave reviews and unprecedented critical acclaim in Europe and America. As a soloist he has performed and recorded with leading international early music ensembles and artists including the Hilliard Ensemble, Hespèrion XX, Andreas Scholl as well as Sting. A consummate interpreter and master technician on numerous early and contemporary stringed instruments, outstanding recital artist Edin Karamazov has appeared at numerous major venues, including the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, London’s Wigmore Hall, Berlin’s Philharmonie, and Vienna’s Konzerthaus, among many others.

The highly successful album Songs from the Labyrinth with Sting, released on Deutsche Grammophon, has not only made him a household name far beyond the confines of the early-music world but also launched a new “lute renaissance” for the 21st century. His latest recording for Decca has been released to great acclaim: The Lute is a Song comprises solo works by J. S. Bach, Leo Brouwer, Zamboni and Domeniconi as well as arias by Handel with Andreas Scholl, Purcell with Renée Fleming, a traditional Macedonian song with Macedonian singer and songwriter Kaliopi, and a work by and with Sting.
