As of its inception a year ago, the “Owlos” Recorder Consort has been quick to receive much acclaim. This is a brilliant ensemble comprising four of Israel’s most highly regarded and prominent recorder players.
For the first time in Israel, this recorder consort (an important ensemble in Renaissance and Baroque music) together with a string ensemble and basso continuo, will facilitate performance of a variety of spirited early- and late Baroque works in a fascinating and unusual program.

Elam Rotem composer and musical director
Ensemble “Profeti della Quinta”
Elam Rotem “For I am sick with love”
Where biblical love meets the musical world, stirring up emotions of the early 17th century; new settings of excerpts from the “Song of Songs”, Amnon and Tamar, Samson and Delilah. Also on the program, early 17th century instrumental works of Giovanni Francesco Anerio, Giovanni Maria Trabaci and others.
Following the immense success of the Israeli premiere of Elam Rotem’s dramatic work “Joseph and his Brothers” two years ago, the superb Israeli vocal quintet “Profeti della Quinta” returns to perform Elam Rotem’s new work - “Song of Songs”.
“Profeti della Quinta”, enjoying great international success, has chosen to launch its new CD “Song of Songs”, recorded for the Pan Classics label, in concerts of the Jerusalem Baroque Orchestra in Israel.
Despite the discerning ear of our listeners, they will find it difficult to hear differences between early Baroque musical language and that of Elam Rotem!
