Harry Christophers conductor

Monteverdi Vespers of 1610

Harry Christophers and his treasured ensemble open the International Concert Series 2024|25 with one of the most important, influential and thrilling works ever written.

Claudio Monteverdi’s Vespro della Beata Vergine – ‘Vespers for the Blessed Virgin’, or simply the Vespers of 1610 – is a landmark in music history. Sacred yet sensual, devout yet dazzling, it’s a work of unprecedented scale and ambition. As conductor Harry Christophers puts it, the Vespers are ‘one of the most significant collections of sacred music ever written, mixing profound expression with unfailing musical beauty’.

The Sixteen choir and orchestra have made Monteverdi’s masterpiece a cornerstone of their repertoire. Five years after they last performed it at The Bridgewater Hall, they’re returning for an encore – a fittingly bold opening to this season’s International Concert Series.
