About Voces Suaves
Voces Suaves, which performs Renaissance and Baroque music with solo voices, is a vocal ensemble based in Basel. Taking into account the insights of historical performance practice, the ensemble strives for captivating rhetoric combined with a warm and full overall sound that makes the music come alive with emotion. By virtue of the intensive collaboration, a great familiarity within the musical work has evolved.
The ensemble, founded in 2012 by Tobias Wicky, is made up of a core of eight professional singers of whom most have a connection with the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. After the ensemble had been shaped over several years by Francesco Saverio Pedrini, it has worked without a musical director since 2016. Consequently, the creative will of each individual member is indispensable for the attainment of the artistic result. The formation varies depending on the program. Instrumentalists are incorporated when necessary.
