Monteverdi: Vespro Della Beata Vergine (2CD + DVD)
Vespers that not only launched his career as a conductor, but also provided the impetus to create his world-renowned Monteverdi Choir. In 1989, to mark the Monteverdi Choir’s 25th anniversary, he made the legendary live recording in St. Mark’s, Venice (where Monteverdi had held the position of maestro di cappella), which is re-presented in this new cap-box edition. This performance was also filmed by the BBC, and is included alongside the CDs.
