the Sovali Consort

The SOVALI CONSORT is an international ensemble of musicians joining forces to revive exquisite music by hitherto neglected 20th-century composers. The project was launched in 2001 by Amsterdam-based singer Sovali (Sofie van Lier) with the Jewish Music Projects Foundation in Amsterdam.
“With her work soprano Sovali (Sofie van Lier) erects a lasting monument to Jewish Soviet composers who had to work in secret during the Stalin Regime.”
