Monteverdi at Easter Concert in Vienna

From authentic historic instruments to internet steaming, the Easter Concert taking place at St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna is straddling old and new worlds.

On 16 April the Bach Consort Wien led by Rubén Dubrovsky will be performing Monteverdi's sacral piece 'Selva mortale e spirituale'. Anyone who can't get to the church performance will be able to watch the recording on the internet on Easter Day.

As well as traditional soprano, bass, tenor and countertenor soloists, the theorbe or the zink are some of the historical instruments that will be used by the Bach Consort at the concert. The Bach Consort is a musical ensemble who focus intensely on the work of composer Johann Sebastian Bach but who also occasionally perform other Baroque works such as those by Francesco Conti or Johann Fux.

The concert will be broadcast Easter Day morning by ORF2, when it can also be watched online via the link www.tvthek.orf.at. It will then be available to watch on demand until 27 April.

To buy tickets for the actual event on Wednesday, 16 April at 20:30 call +43 1 581 86 40 or visit www.osterkonzert.at
