Pegasus Early Music presents Monteverdi Vespers

(Rochester, NY) - Last April Pegasus Early Music performed Monteverdi's Vespers at Hochstein Performance Hall. Paul O'Dette conducted two dozen of the country's finest musicians in this beautiful concert. Monteverdi's Vespers is, according to many, one of the most perfect pieces of music ever written. It ranges from the most intimate solos and duos to a splendid full double choir piece, including complicated counterpoint and a sublime instrumental sonata with a choir of sopranos singing chant above it. Tune into Classical 91.5 on Monday, November 2 at 8 p.m. for Pegasus Early Music presents Monteverdi Vespers. Classical 91.5's Brenda Tremblay hosts. Recorded by Carl Pultz, Alembic Productions.

Pegasus presents an annual series of concerts by world-class performing artists.  Concerts encompass over 400 years of music – from medieval to romantic – played on period instruments.  Pegasus Early Music delivers music of the past with expressive relevance today.
