In 2017 the 450th anniversary of Claudio Monteverdi’s birth will be celebrated all over the world. It goes without saying that the Hamburg Monteverdi-Chor will be congratulating the composer too. All the more so, since it’s a double anniversary for the singers: exactly 50 years ago, to mark the 400th birthday of a musical genius still largely undiscovered at the time, the Monteverdi-Chor joined forces with the Vienna Concentus Musicus to produce a recording of the Monteverdi Vespers that triggered the work’s triumphal march through the world’s concert halls. This evening, the Hamburg ensemble once again turns its attention to this choral masterpiece.

Location

Hauptkirche St. Michaelis

St. Michaelis Church is open to everyone as a place for prayer or for various musical and lecture events. Despite its size, the »Michel« is actually like a village church, and represents the spiritual centre of Hamburg’s Neustadt quarter. As the first building constructed in Hamburg after the Reformation, St. Michaelis became the youngest and biggest of the city’s five main churches in 1685.
