Description

Since July 2017, Maestro Mencoboni has been training a consort of singers in ensemble work and Baroque vocal and musical techniques. The masterclasses focus on the work of the influential Italian composer Claudio Monteverdi and his contemporaries and culminates in a showcase concert in December 14th.

The Monteverdi Project was devised by Kenneth Zammit Tabona, the artistic director of Teatru Manoel and the Valletta Baroque Festival. He engaged Maestro Marco Mencoboni, who is considered to be one of the leading specialists of Baroque and Renaissance music, to run the project.

“The Monteverdi Project concentrates on the music of Claudio Monteverdi and his contemporaries among which are Maltese composers like the Balzano brothers and Griscti among others. Also music that has been discovered in the Mdina cathedral archives like the great Balzano piece is being premiered in this concert”
