Founded in 2015 by students from the National Conservatory of Music in Mexico, Shemesh Quartet has rapidly become a distinguished representative of Mexican vocal music. Being the first ensemble from the nation bridging North and South America to appear at a cappella Leipzig, they bring a unique flair to the genre. Their repertoire spans the serious, classical vocal works of Mexican composers, with Renaissance and Baroque influences, to traditional folk songs and original compositions. The group skilfully navigates between theatricality and authentic expression, a quality that shines through in its concerts and projects. Their programme includes pieces from the 16th, 17th, and 20th centuries, and showcases the deep emotional intensity characterizing both the music and the spirit of their homeland.
