Profeti della Quinta

Focusing on repertoire from the 16th and early 17th centuries, the ensemble Profeti della Quinta aims to create vivid and expressive performances for a modern audience, while addressing period performance practices. The a cappella ensemble comprises a core of five male vocalists and collaborates regularly with instrumentalists and additional vocalists.

Profeti della Quinta, winner of the Young Early Music International Artists Competition, has performed in prestigious festivals and venues in Europe, North America, and Israel. The ensemble took part in a documentary about Salomone Rossi, filmed in Mantua (Hebreo: The Search for Salomone Rossi by Joseph Rochlitz). The ensemble has also performed a biblical drama, Rappresentatione di Giuseppe e i suoi fratelli which was composed by Elam Rotem.

The ensemble was founded in the Galilee region of Israel by Elam Rotem. It is currently based in Switzerland, where all its members undertook further study at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Since its outset, Profeti della Quinta has drawn particular inspiration from the work of Salomone Rossi. Its members are native Hebrew speaking vocalists who specialise Italian Baroque music and as such, have an immediate connection with Rossi as a Jewish Italian composer.
