„1640“ – IN THE SERVICE OF THE DOGES OF VENICE

A sensual journey to the golden domes of St. Mark's Basilica with vocal and instrumental works from Monteverdi to Rigatti | with: Lautten Compagney Berlin, Vocalconsort Berlin, Johannes Weiss (harpsicord & direction)

Monteverdi's late work "Selva Morale", and the sensual psalm settings of the young Rigatti, both published in Venice in 1640, steal us away to the golden domes of St. Mark's Basilica. While the younger composer conjures up astonishingly sweet vocal works, Monteverdi's compositions stand out due to their brilliant, individual ideas. Words, his musical pearls, are deftly strung together, the perfect one bursting out at the right moment, like the crash of lightning in a silent room. The septuagenarian continually stays modern, a true contemporary to his much younger (by 50 years) colleague.
