Vespers by Monteverdi


Presented by Pinchgut Opera


‘A pillar of baroque sacred repertoire’ – Gramophone UK

A spectacular masterpiece of sonic grandeur, Monteverdi’s Vespers blends the grand traditions of Venetian sacred music with the new world of the Baroque: opulent choruses, dramatic solo arias and duets, and some of the most ambitious instrumental music the world had ever heard.

Grand yet intimate, prayerful yet sensual, Vespers is a musical experience like no other: a dazzling array of textures and sonorities that will amaze and delight.
