(because the Church heating has failed)
Monteverdi • Selection from Christmas Vespers
Vivaldi • Autumn from The Four Seasons
Torelli • Concerto Grosso Op 8 no 6, per il Santissimo Natale
Leader • Christina Scott
An early Christmas concert with a difference as we celebrate the 450th anniversary of Monteverdi’s birth with music he composed in Venice during the last thirty years of his life.
Come and enjoy Autumn from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and a Christmas concerto by Torelli, alongside a selection of Monteverdi’s later compositions appropriate to Advent and Christmas from his Selva Morale published in 1640 – works that deserve to be as well-known as his Vespers of 1610.
