Appropriate for any time of year, this masterpiece by Monteverdi is fitting for the solemnities of the Blessed Virgin that begin the New Year.
We continue our long and fruitful association with our partners at Radio Netherlands in presenting a series of concerts from the 2011 Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht. We direct listeners to their web site, which will provide more in-depth information about the music and performers we hear as well as more information about the festival: www.rnwclassical.com
The primary theme for 2011 was a celebration of Rome: The Eternal City.
