Claudio Monteverdi’s sacral concert “Selva Morale e Spirituale”, written in 1641, merges the rythms of folk music with psalms from the Old Testament. The overwhelming acoustics of Vienna’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the usage of historic instruments such as the theorbe or the zink create an authentic and unique sound experience. Led and conducted by Maestro Rubén Dubrovsky, the Vienna Bach Consort, one of the most important Baroque ensembles in Austria, will not fail to impress. The orchestra focuses on the intensive dialog with baroque music and accounts for the rediscovery of many important Baroque works, such as those by Johann Josef Fux or Francesco Bartolomeo Conti. The powerful vocal support by the very talented soloists Soetkin Elbers and Theresa Dlouhy (soprano), Jakob Huppmann and Markus Forster (counter-tenor), Tore Tom Denys and Markus Miesenberger (tenor) as well as Gerd Kenda and Joel Frederiksen (basso) makes this concert a remarkable pleasure.
