Programme Note

Pinsuti's next concert showcases some of the fabulous music included in Monteverdi’s famous vespers of 1610 and his later 1641 vespers. Described as ’A towering masterpiece of the early Baroque — at once intimate and grand, prayerful and dramatic, exalted and sensual. Monteverdi’s rarely performed 1610 Vespers of the Blessed Virgin offers up a dizzying array of textures and sonorities in brilliant instrumental writing, opulent choruses, and moving solo arias and duets’ (Jane Glover) . The vespers of 1641, ’the other vespers’, include much of his life’s work.

We are delighted to be able to bring together the instrumentalists and soloists needed to perform this wonderful music and are very grateful to friends of Paul Woodhouse for support in doing this. Paul was a founder member of Pinsuti and this concert is dedicated to his memory.

The evening will be rounded off by the stunning  triple trumpet concerto by Telemann and Rigatti’s majestic ’Magnificat’.
