Festival de Saint-Denis
  • This classical music festival has got international fame by inviting the world's greatest talents for 50 years!

    On the program tonight: "Vespro della beata vergine" of Monteverdi. With the Monteverdi Choir & Orchestra conducted by Sir John Eliot Gardiner.

    Thoughts for Saint Mark's Basilica in Venice, Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 sounded from every quarter and shone with a thousand colors. The madrigals, and above all Orfeo, have passed through, the role of voices but also instruments, and more generally the dramatic style invades church music.

    From the solo to the spectacular double-choruses, the variety of pieces that make up this work reinforces its grandiose architecture. It is with this sacred, musically revolutionary fresco that Sir John Eliot Gardiner returns to the Festival and invests the Basilica with his legendary orchestra and choirs.
