Claudio Monteverdi 
Vespro della Beata Vergine 

A musical monument comparable to Bach’s Passions, Monteverdi’s masterpiece elevates Helsinki’s Night of the Arts. Sublime and delicate solo singing, strong choirs and unique orchestral passages resonate with profuse richness under the direction of the renowned Italian conductor and Monteverdi expert Rinaldo Alessandrini.

I can safely now agree with many of my international colleagues that they are probably the best choir anywhere in the world, particularly for contemporary music. I have worked with many choirs round the globe and have never had such good performances.
