Monteverdi 1610 Vespers
Situated at the point where the diverse historical musical currents of the late Renaissance and the nascent Baroque periods converge, Claudio Monteverdi's monumental setting of the Marion Vespers service remains one of the cornerstones of early Baroque sacred music. A virtual compendium of the rich variety of musical styles of the time, Monteverdi creates a musical masterpiece, a diverse work that is nonetheless unified by vitue of its sheer splendor, superb craftsmanship, and emotional depth.
This special and not-to-be-missed performance will be led by renowned lutenist, conductor and Early Music specialist Stephen Stubbs (Tragicomedia, Pacific Musicworks, Boston Early Music Festival).
Tesserae performances are often followed by an informal jam in which members of the audience are invited to join us in playing repertoire related to the concert program. We believe this is a great way for professional and amateur performers of various period instruments to share their passion for Early Music.
Music for these post-concert events will be posted one month in advance on the Tesserae website. All levels and period instruments welcome!
