Claudio Monteverdi's magnificent Vespro della Beata Vergine is one of the milestones in the history of music: the old and the new musical language of this period are mixed, virtuoso soloistic and large polyphonic pieces are juxtaposed with each other. The work demands a rich cast of voices and instruments. For the performance of this masterpiece, there is no better partner than l' arpa festante, with whom the Chamber Choir has already performed several great works such as the Christmas Oratorio by J. S. Bach or the Requiem by W.A. Mozart. A top-class quintet of soloists completes our line-up. The Vespers of the Virgin Mary will be conducted by the charismatic conductor Thomas Gropper.
