Aldeburgh Festival: Monteverdi Choir, Monteverdi Orchestra, Kati Debretzeni, Maya Homburger
Bach - Cantata 37 Wer da glaubet und getauft wird; Cantata 128 Auf Christi Himmelfahrt allein; Concerto for two Violins, D-Minor; Cantata 43 Gott fahret auf mit Jauchzen
For nearly five decades Sir John Eliot Gardiner with his Monteverdi Choir and Orchestra have been thrilling audiences with performances that marry freshness, clarity and a peerless vocal virtuosity. With a remarkable repertoire spanning eight centuries of western music from sacred music to opera, madrigals to oratorio, it is perhaps Bach that provides the constant, most famously in their extraordinary millennium pilgrimage project. Here in the first of two Bach programmes, Ascensiontide cantatas are wrapped around one of his best-loved instrumental works, the sublime double violin concerto.
‘If there were a Nobel prize for choirs, the Monteverdi Choir should be its laureate’ - Le Monde
Founded by Sir John Eliot Gardiner as part of the break-away period instrument movement of the 1960s, the Monteverdi Choir have always focused on bringing a new perspective to their repertoire. Their real difference as an ensemble lies in their ability to communicate music to their audiences worldwide, as they go beyond the music, seeking to create immediacy and drama in everything they do. This approach has led to the Monteverdi Choir being consistently acclaimed as one of the best choirs in the world over the past 50 years.
