Philippe Herreweghe, conductor
Claudio Monteverdi: “Vespro della Beata Vergine”

With his “Marian Vespers”, Claudio Monteverdi became one of the most innovative composers of his time: strict polyphony was combined with textual clarity and graphic tonal effects. This is stirring music, congenially interpreted by Philippe Herreweghe and his Collegium Vocale Gent.
