Monteverdi Vespers Monteverdi Choir John Gardiner Decca Classics 2Cds Dvd

John Eliot Gardiner
Claudio Monteverdi

450th anniversary (LIMITED EDITION)

One of the most thrillingly atmospheric recordings of Baroque choral music ever made.” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE, 2012 – 50 Greatest Recordings of All Time.

In March 1964, as a student at King’s College, Cambridge, John Eliot Gardiner led a performance of Monteverdi’s Vespers that not only launched his career as a conductor, but also provided the impetus to create his world-renowned Monteverdi Choir. In 1989, to mark the Monteverdi Choir’s 25th anniversary, he made the legendary live recording in St. Mark’s, Venice (where Monteverdi had held the position of maestro di cappella), which is re-presented in this deluxe hardback edition. This performance was also filmed by the BBC, and is included alongside the CDs.

An Introduction by John Eliot Gardiner

An atmospheric and distinctive performance beautifully accommodated to its deluxe setting . . . a gloriously public Vespers, and thoroughly Venetian for that.” GRAMOPHONE MAGAZINE, 2005

For incisive choral singing and sheer theatrical excitement, this has few rivals. The choir pounces on every dramatic and textual detail, and the soloists project with bags of weight and vibrato. Big and thrilling.” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE, 2007

The visual content of this DVD package enhances the power of what already ranks among the finest recordings of the 1610 Vespers.”
CLASSIC FM, ON THE DVD RE-RELEASE, 2003

A resplendent spatial feast of the kind Gardiner clearly sought to realise.” GRAMOPHONE MAGAZINE, ON THE DVD RE-RELEASE, 2003

Special deluxe edition celebrating Monteverdi’s 450th anniversary
100-page hardback book with complete sung texts
Includes exclusive NEW interview with John Eliot Gardiner, which explores his affinity to the Monteverdi Vespers
