Christina Pluhar and her daring Baroque ensemble L’Arpeggiata thrive on pushing music to its limits. Join us in the Hall or online as they sing out the brilliance and beauty of Monteverdi’s Vespers.
It’s 1610 and Monteverdi’s writing has broken new boundaries. Uplifting, joyful and theatrical: old traditions and meticulous polyphony meet virtuosic solo lines and twirling instrumentation. Dancing energy, astonishing improvisations and the very best of the iconic work will be brought out in flourishing one-to-a-part vocal lines from L’Arpeggiata’s hand-picked soloists.
‘A truly exciting one-voice-per-part Vespers that rethinks the work anew’ was the verdict of Gramophone of the group’s 2011 recording. Ten years on, and Pluhar and L’Arpeggiata have firmly established themselves as front-runners of Baroque music interpretation, with an unparalleled degree of freedom to their re-imaginings.
