three baroque masterpieces:
Memories of Nikolaus Harnoncourt inevitably arise when the audience gathers in Schloss Stainz for the styriarte’s annual church concert. This year it is Jordi Savall’s turn to pay tribute to the spirit of Stainz. He conducts three baroque masterpieces for the vespers of the Virgin: Handel’s Roman Dixit Dominus with its phenomenal choruses, Fux’s Viennese Nisi Dominus from his vespers for Ash Wednesday and Vivaldi’s Venetian Magnificat. 60 minutes of the most expressive baroque music, providing the choir, the orchestra and the soloists with infinite opportunities for drama and virtuosity.
ORF Steiermark will broadcast the concert evening from 9pm on Radio Steiermark, and ORF III will show the concert simultaneously throughout Austria on television.
