Among the many Monteverdi inspired concerts on offer at this year’s Winter Festival is La Nuova Musica, one of Europe’s newest and most exciting early music ensembles, is joining us once again! Lead by counter-tenor and conductor David Bates, La Nuova Musica have performed in various settings including a late night ‘cabaret’ concert in the Aldeburgh Festival Fringe and the quirky St Lawrence Whitchurch, Edgware for the London Handel Festival.
In the short time they have been together they have been praised for their “refreshingly spirited and unselfconscious vocal and instrumental performances” and in their last visit to Spitalfields for the Summer Festival, they enchanted us with John Blow’s masterpiece, Venus & Adonis. This time they open the festival, presenting a captivating selection from Monteverdi’s extraordinary ‘Concerto’, the Seventh Book of Madrigals in Christ Church Spitalfields on 13 December.
