Delian Chamber Players
The namesake of the Delian Chamber Players is the Greek god Apollo, the god of the fine arts, who is also called Delian after his place of birth, the island of Delos. Ever since the Delian Chamber Players were founded in 2007, the stages of large venues and important festivals have welcomed the ensemble. Its debut at the Berliner Philharmoniker in 2009 triggered genuine waves of enthusiasm. Since then, acclaimed by the public and press alike, the ensemble has performed concerts spanning almost all of Europe and - as a cultural ambassador for the Goethe-Institut - as far away as Africa. In addition to maintaining its existing string quartet range from early baroque to the present day, the Delian Chamber Players are largely committed to expanding its musical repertoire.
Sylvia Schwartz (Sopran)
Spanish soprano Sylvia Schwartz has appeared at many of the world's finest opera houses and festivals including La Scala Milan, Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, Wiener Staatsoper, Teatro Real Madrid, Bayerische Staatsoper, Staatsoper Hamburg, The Bolshoi Theatre, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Edinburgh, Baden Baden, Salzburg and Verbier festivals. Sylvia is also much in demand in concert and is a celebrated recitalist and has worked with pianists such as Wolfram Rieger, Charles Spencer and Malcolm Martineau; and with conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Daniel Barenboim, Philippe Jordan, René Jacobs, Fabio Luisi, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Sir Colin Davis, Gustavo Dudamel, Patrick Fournillier, Marc Minkowski, Ivor Bolton, Yves Abel, Jean-Christophe Spinosi, Helmuth Rilling and Christopher Hogwood.
