A counter tenor and a lute made a perfect evening yesterday. One great concert at City Hall concert hall. Great singer, great lute player – a perfect pair. Some people may not like counter tenors (I did notice some audience left after intermission last night) but being minority doesn’t mean they’re weird. One funny thing was that Andreas Scholl choked himself as he started singing Amarili. I noticed that he started at a faster tempo than he sang it in recordings and before he could finish the first phrase “Amarili, mia bella”, he had to stop, humbly apologized and restarted the song.
