Claudio Monteverdi

Claudio Monteverdi

Concerning the Vespers

The 1610 Vespers remains today one of the greatest examples of sacred music, on a level with Handel's Messiah and Bach's St. Matthew Passion. This performance marks the first complete original instrument performance in Austin and will be at the newly restored and acoustically brilliant Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Austin.

Claudio Monteverdi was one of the most significant revolutionaries to bring about the change in musical style from the Renaissance to the Baroque period.  He is known for his development of solo monody, opera, continuo, conscious functional tonality, and the use of precise instrumental textures to achieve dramatic effect.
