Music by Monteverdi, Kapsberger, Nauwach, Amodei, Caccini and others.

Brita Rehsöft (soprano), Claas Haders (viola da gamba, lirone), Andreas Düker (lute)

Brita Rehsöft performs with two of her long-standing musical colleagues and specialists in their field at the Schönberger Musiksommer and presents a semi-staged program with soprano, lute, viola da gamba and lirone, which makes the music of Claudio Monteverdi the focal point.

Andreas Düker, a lutenist from Göttingen, is equally adept in a wide range of styles from early music to jazz. Claas Harders from Bremen is a sought-after gambist in the early music scene. In addition to the viola da gamba, he also plays the lirone in this program. Brita Rehsöft, a versatile singer and performer from the Schönberg area, works across genres and internationally in a wide variety of projects.

In the concert in Schönberg, compositions by Johann Hieronymus Kapsberger, Gulio Caccini and Johannes Nauwach will be placed in context with those by Claudio Monteverdi. A piece by the composer Barbara Strozzi will be given pride of place in the program.

Monteverdi, a violinist from Cremona, was in the service of the Gonzaga court of the Muses in Mantua until 1610, before being appointed Kapellmeister at St. Mark's Church in Venice. There he got to know a whole series of the composers represented in the program, some of whom had a hard time against his intolerant artistic rigidity. Monteverdi was not only the greatest master of his time, but also its protagonist, defending the principle of the new style, the "seconda pratica", against his opponents. The overwhelming power of his music can be explained, among other things, by the fact that he took an unusually long time to compose. It took him a month to write a single madrigal (Handel wrote the entire "Messiah" in the same period of time!), and the hasty composition of the opera Arianna brought him to the brink of complete collapse. His meticulous composing led to a fusion of word and sound that no other master of his time achieved to such perfection.
