We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the Howard Hodgkin estate for this very generous donation and display of support. This valuable contribution will assist us in achieving our future ambitions and continue in sharing our music-making with global audiences.

In memory of Kevin Lavery


It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our dear friend and supporter Kevin Lavery – who died peacefully in hospital on Sunday 22 October.

Kevin loved music and was a devoted supporter of Monteverdi Choir & Orchestras and our record label SDG, generously giving much of his time and energy to further our projects and music-making. He will be profoundly missed.

We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones at this sad time.

'In so many ways Kevin Lavery was the model director of a musical charity such as ours: a tremendous lover of music, an indefatigable and generous supporter of the Monteverdi Choir and its twin orchestras, and a wise counsel on matters of business. As a director of our record label SDG over many years he singlehandedly set up our royalty payment systems with incredible precision, working countless hours pro bono. His enthusiasm for each new artistic venture was palpable and heartening, and I shall treasure his written impressions and assessments of the concerts he attended both here and abroad. He was the most delightful company and we shall miss him sorely.'

John Eliot Gardiner

Paris Monteverdi 450 Trilogy Performance Reviews
© Adu Parc

 ★★★★ by Maeva Da Cruz  

'The harmonic and rhythmic audacities of this complex score...seem familiar to the English Baroque Soloists orchestra, which shows remarkable ease by deploying so many colors in the performance'
 by Michel Le Naour 

'[Sir John Eliot Gardiner's] training of the English Baroque Soloists assisted by the Monteverdi Choir offers an interpretation of all beauty where instrumental perfection disputes with grace' by Olivier Brunel

'[Sir John Eliot Gardiner's] leadership at the head of the superb English Baroque Soloistsis is musical perfection itself' 

Olyrix by Frédérique Epin

'The magnificent sonority of the ensemble of old instruments, the roundness of the violins and the velvety flutes and the variety of timbres and phrasings are in perfect match with the supple and precise gesture of the leader'

 by Charles Arden
'The instrumental ensemble, opulent wonder of refinement, makes the meadows flourish under the footsteps of lovers together'
