Venetian Coronation

Paul McCreesh, conductor

Saturday, November 12
Venetian Coronation

Experience the elaborate and sacred sound world of early Baroque Italian masters as summoned by the cornetts, sackbuts, Renaissance strings, organ, natural trumpets, drums, and male voices of Gabrieli. Reconstructing a ceremonial Mass from Venice’s iconic St. Mark’s Basilica, this timeless group of musicians evokes the grand pageantry of a 16th-century coronation, offering a glorious concert experience full of regal pomp and circumstance.

“An experience you just never want to come to an end.”

—Leipziger Volkszeitung

“Artistry that completely avoids the impression of artifice: you simply feel you’re listening directly to what the composer meant by the music.””

—BBC Music Magazine
