Forthcoming shows featuring the same performers:
|Monteverdi||selections from Selva Morale e spirituale|
|The Sixteen instrumentalists and singers|
|Mark Hodgson||double bass|
While jazz musicians improvise over bass riffs, Monteverdi’s continuo section did just the same – performers on chittarone, harp and harpsichord were given the freedom to extemporise and express their musical characters over the composer’s hypnotic bass lines.
Harry Christophers of The Sixteen and Julian Joseph plan to fuse the two traditions, allowing baroque instruments and the modern piano and bass to represent the sentiments and imagery conjured up by the evocative words Monteverdi sets to music.
Each half will be, in effect, a continuous fusion of the styles, mostly in conversation with each other but occasionally coming together as one. Look forward to a unique and atmospheric sonic experience which unites two styles and eras.
The performance will last approximately 2hrs including interval.
