KKL Luzern, Lucerne, Switzerland
Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique
John Eliot Gardiner - conductor
Following on from two hugely successful performances of the Requiem in Zurich earlier this year with the Tonhalle-Orchester, the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique step into the frame to showcase their Verdian mastery. After travelling to Wroclaw to open the series of performances in September, the tour will visit a roster of major European venues before concluding at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam in early November. The orchestra and Monteverdi Choir will be joined by a stellar line-up of soloists; Corinne Winters (Soprano), Ann Hallenberg (Mezzo-soprano), Montvidas Edgaras (Tenor) and Gianluca Buratto (Bass).
The Monteverdi ensembles have enjoyed great success in previous performances of this monumental work; in addition to its highly acclaimed performances, the group recorded the Messa da Requiem for release in 1995.
