About us

Research has always been a key element of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis since it was explicitly founded as an “Institute for Teaching and Research in the Field of Early Music” in 1933.

Today the Research Department consists of permanent staff members, supported by colleagues from the teaching staff, and of research fellows of the projects. An important aim is to connect our research with current issues related to historical performance practice and thus to inform teaching at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis as well as to interact with the international community of musicology. These efforts are documented by numerous research projects and cooperations and are also aided by the scientific advisory board of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.

Antonius Adamske is a conductor, focussed on Early Music. He studied conducting at the Hannover conservatoire and “historic organ” at the Schola Cantorum in Basel.

Adamske is conductor of the famous Monteverdi-Chor Hamburg, and Artistic Director of consortium vocale berlin, the Studio Choir of the Berlin conservatoires. He taught at the University of Göttingen and Clausthal and led many performances of forgotten works in this position. He still maintains a close relationship as project leader with the Göttinger Barockorchester. Appearances as guest conductor as well as teaching masterclasses in Germany, France, China and other countries are part of his musical career. His recordings of less well-known choir works are frequently heard on the radio and are available on CD.
