Armonico: Monteverdi Vespers of 1610

September 23rd

 

Armonico Consort & Baroque Orchestra

Director | Christopher Monks 

A towering masterpiece of the early Baroque and one of the greatest pillars of music history, Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 offer a stunning array of brilliant instrumental writing, opulent choruses and moving arias.

Over 400 years ago this astounding work marked the end of the Renaissance and the beginning of the Baroque. The publication in 1610 almost certainly helped Monteverdi gain the prestigious post of maestro di cappella at St Mark’s in Venice, which he kept until his death in 1643.

“An excellent all-round performance, in which Monks led and inspired a thoroughly good ensemble and displayed the sublime music of the master to its best.” Birmingham Post

2017 is the 450th anniversary of the birth of Italian composer, Claudio Monteverdi, and Armonico Consort mark the occasion with a UK tour. Armonico Consort’s Artistic Director, Christopher Monks, talks about his first acquaintance with Monteverdi’s Vespers and what the work means to him. Click HERE to read the full article.
