Description

Monteverdi
Vespro della Beata Vergine (“Vespers of 1610”)
Magnificat a 6 voci

 

Nils Brown tenor
American Bach Choir
Jeffrey Thomas conductor

 

Like the most treasured works of art and spectacular architectural wonders, a handful of musical masterworks of the Baroque have taken their places in the hearts of music lovers for all time.  Our 29th subscription season continues with Monteverdi’s Vespro della Beata Vergine (also known as the “Vespers of 1610”), a monumental work that displays its composer’s brilliant assimilation of styles—old and new, sacred and secular—and his masterful command of a wide palette of musical structures including psalm settings, sacred concertos, hymns, motets, and sonatas, all bound together by Gregorian chant. Last performed by ABS in 2010, audiences can expect the American Bach Soloists and the American Bach Choir to deliver an extraordinary performance of this splendid music from the Venetian school.

 

“It was a stunning performance … Mr. Thomas’ deep knowledge of the work gave him the ability to draw both subtleties and the rich sonorities to bring out the sheer majesty of Monteverdi … The large audience was transfixed.”
Classical Sonoma
