A propos de la personne
Since 2003 a group comprising mainly gamba players has come together under the name The Sirius Viols, and depending on the project and repertoire, they are joined by other instrumentalists and sing - ers to try out various musical ideas or approaches under the non-direction of Hille Perl. The participants are either current or former students of Hille Perl, together with the colleagues she most admires from related disciplines. The ensemble’s repertoire is restricted to music which is suited to gambas and their specific aura, or under certain circumstances in combination with other instruments or singers; that is to say, virtually all of the gamba repertoire. After the first extremely successful CD was issued, entitled In darkness let me dwell, with music by John Dowland, Sirius Viols released a CD of Christmas music in November 2011 – a search for peace and calm in these hectic times: Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich.
