Welcome To ViolaVoce.eu - Music for Baritone and Viola

Viola and voice -what an extraordinary and rare combination. Reduced, concentrated and to the point - and yet our concerts are one thing above all: a sensual pleasure.

  • "Concert at St. Peter and Paul, Remagen"
  • "Recording our CD"

We: that are the Italian violists Maurizio Barbetti and the German baritone Hartmut Schulz. For some years we have been working together, concerts so far have taken us to Rome, Assisi, Jesi, Orta Lake, Cologne and Remagen.

The heart of our collaboration is our passion for contemporary music, but not only. For example, our current CD "My Soul has Nought but Fire and Ice" (to be published by Stradivarius) features works by the English late-romanticists Ralph Vaughan Williams and Gustav Holst.

We will also present this program on a small tour in the spring of 2017.

Maurizio Barbetti: Since 1992 Barbetti is completely devoted to concert music and performs as a soloist in the most important centers of the world

Hartmut Schulz: The baritone Hartmut Schulz is a passionate singer of concert music of all eras, but his special interest is contemporary chamber music
