Where to start? — Lecture about Monteverdi’s Marian vespers


  • 20.00 Kamermuziekzaal

A lecture about countless choices and few conclusions

Monteverdi's most famous work, the Vespro della Beata Vergine, is undoubtedly a musical and historical monument. But despite their fame, these Marian vespers are shrouded in uncertainties. Faced with such an incredible source work, how should a performer, proceed? In this lecture, musicologist and musician Marc Vanscheeuwijck undermines the image of a sacrosanct work of art.
