Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad: Ensemble Matheus
Ascend to the greatest alpine heights at the 2022 Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad for a brilliant Baroque concert with Maestro Jean-Christophe Spinosi and the Ensemble Matheus!
From the gorgeous Saanen Church, the esteemed ensemble pays tribute to the pre-Classical era with works by three of the greatest Baroque masters. On the programme: monuments of instrumental music like Vivaldi's L'Olimpiade overture and Bach's Harpsichord Concerto No. 1, as well as vocal masterpieces courtesy of sensational soprano Ana Maria Labin. The singer brings her refined technique and crystalline tone to exquisite melodies by Vivaldi, including the motet In furore giustissimae irae and an excerpt from Juditha triumphans, the sole surviving oratorio of four that the Italian master is known to have composed.
