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.
The performance lasts approximately 60 minutes without an interval.
