Ārt House 17

Tief hineintauchen in die historische Musik und ihre Geschichte(n): das ist die Mission des frisch gegründeten Ensembles Ārt House 17. Dazu haben Michael Hell und Georg Kroneis einige der besten Spezialist:innen ihres Fachs um sich versammelt. Ihr Repertoire reicht von Pergolesi über Mozart bis zu Offenbach.

Philipp Mathmann

Countertenor

Born in Germany, Philipp Mathmann is considered a rising star among the countertenors of the baroque scene. In addition to his musical career and numerous appearances at international music festivals the singer studied medicine in Münster.

Dietrich Henschel

The stylistic range of the Berlin baritone, born in 1967, extends from Monteverdi to contemporary premieres. In between are huge roles such as Mozart's Don Giovanni or Busoni's Doktor Faust, which won him a Grammy in 2001. In addition to his engagements at Europe's great theatres, Dietrich Henschel's devotion is also to the Lied.

Mario Lesiak

Tenor & Arciliuto

Coming from the field of classical guitar, Mario Lesiak discovered the beauty of the lute for himself. His passion for the delicate strings continues to this day and makes it a pleasure to listen to the musician and singer on the Renaissance and archlute.

Didac Cano

Actor, Acrobat

As a juggler and circus artist, acrobat Didac “Diegolow!” Cano works on his own projects and circus productions. Furthermore, the performer passes on his countless skills as a teacher, he works as a choreographer and lighting designer, among other things, and has thus gained an excellent reputation as a jack-of-all-trades.

Adrian Schvarzstein

Wherever this man appears, he guarantees to surprise us. Adrian Schvarzstein, born in Buenos Aires in 1967, is not only an actor and clown of international renown, but with his directing works inspired by commedia dell'arte, street art and circus, he turns every musical theatre piece into an adventure for audience and artists alike.

Thomas Höft

Dramatic adviser

Seit 1994 prägen seine Ideen und Erzählungen das Antlitz und die DNA des Hauses Styriarte entscheidend mit. Neben der Dramaturgie, in der sein unkonventioneller Expertensinn für Musikgeschichte(n) immer neue Überraschungen aufspürt, ist der 1961 geborene Niedersachse auch Autor und Regisseur mit europaweitem Wirkungskreis.

Michael Hell

Cembalo, Blockflöte

Michael Hell, geboren in Nordrhein-Westfalen, ist sowohl auf der Blockflöte als auch am Cembalo ein Virtuose, dessen Ruf weit über seine Grazer Wahlheimat hinausreicht. Zudem ist er führender Experte für Generalbass und historische Aufführungspraxis, der Regeln und Geschichte(n) seiner Kunst mit ansteckender Begeisterung zu vermitteln weiß.

A PLAY ABOUT EMANCIPATION

Café Zimmermann was once a highlight for the many visitors to Leipzig, city of trade fairs. After all it offered wonderful entertainment, both indoors and out, in the form of the Collegium Musicum, for whom the great Johann Sebastian Bach composed such light-hearted musical scenarios as the “Coffee Cantata”. Ārt House 17 and Adrian Schvarzstein make the setting a Styrian café, and Liesgen, the caffeine addict, is played and sung by a man, soprano Philipp Mathmann.
