Tamar Halperin and Andreas Scholl

Tamar Halperin and Andreas Scholl

The countertenor Andreas Scholl and keyboard player Tamar Halperin are internationally recognised as soloists in their own right. Since 2007, they have worked together as the Scholl/Halperin duo.

Andreas Scholl was born in Germany and began his musical training with the Kiedricher Chorbuben choir. He later studied under Richard Levitt and René Jacobs at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. He has won numerous awards and prizes, including the prestigious ECHO Award.

Tamar Halperin received her musical education at the Tel-Aviv University and at The Juilliard School in New York with studies in piano, harpsichord and musicology. Her repertoire extends over five centuries and includes pop, jazz, electronic and new classical music in addition to Baroque music.

As the Scholl/Halperin duo, Andreas and Tamar have performed a wide range of repertoire on some of the world’s most prestigious stages. They initiated, arranged, recorded, and produced “The Family Songbook”, a collection of (mostly children’s) songs in German, Hebrew, and English, dedicated to their daughter. The music on this album was performed together with twenty-five members of three generations of the Scholl-Halperin family from Israel & Germany, and recorded in their home studio during one week in the summer of 2018. They also released the “Twilight People,” an album of contemporary folk song arrangements for piano and voice (2019).

Andreas and Tamar often teach together, applying a practical approach to questions of music performance and interpretation
