MONTEVERDI VESPERS OF 1610

October 23, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$17.50

Early Music Vancouver, in co-production with the Vancouver Chamber Choir and Seattle’s Pacific MusicWorks, presents the iconic Monteverdi Vespers of 1610, Friday, October 23 at 7:30pm at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts.

The monumental and undisputed masterpiece is a pillar of the late-Renaissance and early baroque repertoire. Full of dazzling virtuosity, exotic instruments and movements of sensuous intimacy balanced with moments of large-scale sonic splendour, this is a work that transcends all musical preference. Nine internationally-renowned vocalists are accompanied by North America’s best seventeenth-century instrumentalists, including the peerless Bruce Dickey on cornetto. All prestigious artists perform under the baton of GRAMMY-Award winning conductor Stephen Stubbs, praised for leading an “utterly thrilling” (Seattle Times) performance of Vespers in 2010.
