Today we released our new CD, Bach Mass in B minor, on the Soli Deo Gloria label. John Eliot Gardiner returns to record Bach's iconic work with the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists for the first time since 1985.
Over the weekend the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque soloists have been residents of Versailles, performing Vespro della Beata Vergine and L'Orfeo in the Chapelle Royale and the Galerie des Glaces respectively. Here is a short video of their rehearsal for L'Orfeo, with Krystian Adam playing the eponymous hero.
In a 2-part interview with Catherine Bott, Sir John Eliot Gardiner talks about revisiting Bach's iconic Mass in B minor since first recording it in 1985. The new recording, available now for pre-order, will be released 13 Novemeber.
The project aims to establish a Europe-wide training network for young musicians and help them become the best professional orchestral players of the future.
The partners will join forces to expose the most talented young musicians of the EU Member States and European neighbours to master classes with internationally renowned musicians with different musical backgrounds - from large symphonic orchestras, to chamber orchestras and chamber music.
This project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
