Preview 6.30pm
Harry Christophers and Eamonn Dougan discuss the evening’s programme, with a pre-concert performance by Genesis Sixteen conducted by Eamonn Dougan and Gabriella Noble.

The Sixteen performs one of the most magnificent pieces of the classical repertoire, Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610, famed for its thrilling rhythms, grand choruses and beautiful solo movements. Vespro della Beata Vergine 1610 has endured which is testament to its ethereal quality; it is a religious work of absolute majesty.

The Bridgewater Hall’s associate artists, The Sixteen, arose from its founder and conductor Harry Christophers’ formative experience as a cathedral chorister and choral scholar. His enterprise, launched in 1979, built on the best of the British choral tradition while setting new standards of virtuosity and musicianship. Although refined over four decades, their sound has remained remarkably consistent, always responsive to the emotional content of words and music, ever alert to subtle nuances of colour and shading.

Part of Manchester’s International Concert Series, The Bridgewater Hall’s own classical music concert series.
