Fantastic reviews from Salzburg
24 July 2014

Last Sunday the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists performed two concerts at the Salzburg Festival.
 

 

Monteverdi 50 Anniversary low res 




"Monteverdi Vespers: Never has there been such a sound in the Cathedral."

"The only question that remains: can there be anything greater after this stunning performance?"

"An indescribable miracle happened…Not a regular musical performance, but only an overwhelming magical whirring of countless vocal lines, criss-crossed, fulfilled and floating in perfect harmony...Salzburg experienced a divine hour."

"The Monteverdi Choir is considered as one of the best choirs in the world. It is hard to describe a sound experience of metaphysical expression. Balance in all vocal groups, impressive intonation, virtuosic shaping of the most difficult coloraturas, fabulous choir soloists – all that is the Monteverdi Choir. And all that is John Eliot Gardiner."
