Profeti della Quinta, winner of the 2011 York Early Music Young Artists Competition, has performed in prestigious festivals and venues in Europe, North America and Israel. The ensemble took part in a documentary about Salomone Rossi, filmed in Mantua (Hebreo: the search for Salomone Rossi / Joseph Rochlitz, 2012). Among the recent ventures of the ensemble is the biblical drama Rappresentatione di Giuseppe e i suoi fratelli, composed by Elam Rotem.

The ensemble was founded in the Galilee region of Israel by Elam Rotem. It is currently based in Switzerland, where all its members undertook further study at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. The music of Salomone Rossi has played a significant role in the work of Profeti della Quinta since its foundation. The native Hebrew speaking singers, who specialize in the music of the Italian Baroque, have an immediate connection to Salomone Rossi as a Jewish Italian composer. From its core of five male singers, the a-cappella ensemble collaborates regularly with instrumentalists and additional singers.
