About

A Venitian Coronation, 1595

A spectacular and popular recreation of the Coronation Mass of the Venetian Doge Marino Grimani at St Mark’s, Venice, in 1595, A Venetian Coronation. This lavish sequence of festive music has become synonymous with tonight’s performers and combines brilliance and solemnity in a compelling and kaleidoscopic programme of masterpieces for combinations of voices, cornetts and sackbuts by Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli. The Gabrieli Consort & Players’ original 1989 recording, and the second recording in 2012 (which incorporated new scholarship), both won Gramophone Awards. A Venetian Coronation has been performed in many of the world’s greatest cathedrals and concert halls and is revived here in celebration of the Gabrielis’ 40th anniversary.
