Monteverdi Choir


  • Widely considered as one of the best choirs in the world, the Monteverdi Choir was formed by Sir John Eliot Gardiner in 1964. Known for the supreme quality of its singers, many of whom have gone onto major solo careers, the choir has pioneered many major projects such as the Bach Cantata Pilgrimage in 2000 where they performed all 198 of JS Bach’s sacred cantatas in more than 60 churches around Europe; it was described as ‘one of the most ambitious musical projects of all times’ by Gramophone Magazine. 

  • 蒙特维尔迪合唱团被认为是世界范围内最优秀的合唱团之一。合唱团于1964年由约翰·艾略特·嘉迪纳爵士创立,以其演唱技巧高超的合唱成员(其中许多已经成为了专业的独唱演员),合唱团在许多国际性的音乐节等活动中都担任主要的演出任务,比如2000年巴赫康塔塔作品巡礼节,乐团在音乐节期间在欧洲60多个不同的教堂演出了198首全套的巴赫康塔塔作品。他们的演奏被德国《留声机》唱片称为“有史以来最有野心的音乐项目之一”。
