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. Pinchgut’s stunning live concert performance is captured brilliant on film here for you to enjoy.
