‘Outstanding virtuosity on the part of both instrumentalists and singers, coupled with a sense of theatre, invested this superb music with great emotional intensity.’ The Age
Ludovico’s Band is one of Australia’s most dynamic Baroque bands acclaimed for its performances of music from the 16th to the 18th centuries. The combination of multiple plucked string instruments with soaring violins and a rich bowed bass creates a unique and exotic sound world.
In Monteverdi’s ambitious Vespers of 1610, the composer seamlessly combined unaccompanied choral church music with the opulent theatricality of the Baroque, demonstrating his mastery of both the old and the new. Ludovico’s Band joins forces with Ensemble Gombert under the direction of John O’Donnell for this performance of Monteverdi’s much-loved sacred work.
