Monteverdi Choir (Choir) - Short History (1082 words)
The Monteverdi Choir was founded at Cambridge in March 1964 by John Eliot Gardiner, then an undergraduate, for a performance of the Monteverdi Vespers (1610) in King's College Chapel, with the aim of introducing the colours and passion of Italian music to audiences reared on the English choral tradition.
As an opera chorus, the Monteverdi Choir has performed in the theatres of La Scala, Milan; Zurich, Paris, Lyons and Strasbourg, drawing new audiences to the operas of Rameau and Gluck, the masques of Purcell and to the dramatic oratorios of Händel.
In the summer of 1996 the Monteverdi Choir joined the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique under John Eliot Gardiner in performances of Beethoven's Leonore, Missa Solemnis and the Choral Symphony throughout Europe (including the Proms and Salzburg Festival) and at the inaugural Lincoln Center Festival in New York.
Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 - an Essay by Predrag Gosta (8851 words)
Claudio Monteverdi was born in Cremona, in 1567.
Monteverdi proved to be a person of a strong and exciting temperament, to have “fire in his blood” – as his music, full of excitement, lavishing harmonies, and exuberant tempos shows.
Monteverdi’s Vespers are an excellent example of the integration of old and new styles in music: the solo movements being virtuosic in the secular theatrical style, the choruses part of the older polyphonic church tradition.
