Monteverdi Ancient and Modern 1: Vespers of 1610
Monteverdi’s iconic Vespers of 1610 juxtaposes the newest musical techniques of the early Baroque with the older methods of the Renaissance, making it both a work of stylistic reconciliation and one of unparalleled richness. It is presented for us by an exciting pairing of first-rank vocal and instrumental ensembles, performing together for the first time.
