La Selva del Monte Verde

Una missa solenne per San Marco di Venezia

Wednesday August 1st, 21:00 – Valloire church

Venetian Festivities and Solemnities in Monteverdi’s time, Anno 1613…
Claudio Monteverdi, the new, already illustrious choirmaster has just come into office at Saint Mark’s Basilica in the City of Doges. A native of Cremona, the maestro di cappella has founded his reputation on secular works: books of madrigals and his “Orfeo, favola in musica”, recently performed at the court of Mantua.
As to sacred works, he has “only” published a six-voice mass and his Vespers for the Blessed Virgin: far from enough to satisfy the Venetians’ taste for church music! The newcomer will then compose a specific “Missa Solenna per Santo Marco”, to quote a letter he wrote to Alessandro Striggio, his librettist and friend. Granted confidence and support by the Doge, Monteverdi will produce music of a previously unknown kind.
Borrowing from the rich corpus of sacred works that Monteverdi collected in the “Selva morale et spirituale” of his late years, La Fenice has pieced together a “Missa solenne” for contemporary ears.

La Fenice

The phoenix – la fenice in Italian – is originally the fabulous long-lived bird of mythology, forever burning to death and arising from its ashes. Both a symbol of the Renaissance and the City of Doges, La Fenice is also the name taken on by a group of virtuoso musicians brought together by cornettist Jean Tubéry, in 1990. Essentially driven by their desire to share their passion for the sumptuous music of 17th-century Venice, they also approach the whole of the European repertoire, spanning over two centuries of music.
The ensemble immediately garnered two international First Prizes (Bruges, 1990, Malmö, 1992). Ever since, it has been invited at the most prestigious festivals in France, Europe, the United States and also, South America, Japan, or China.
Its recordings have regularly received the highest awards, among which, in 2017, a Diapason d’Or and a Choc de Classica for their 7-CD box set: “The Heritage of Monteverdi”.

Jean Tubéry
Trained both as recorder and cornett player, Jean Tubéry first performs as either within a number of renowned ensembles before approaching choir direction. He was thus asked to conduct the Dunedin Consort (Edinburgh), the Norway Solistenkor (Oslo), the Chœur de Radio-France, the Nederlands Kamerkoor, Vox Luminis, and the Chœur de Chambre de Namur of which he was principal conductor between 2002 to 2008, winning two Académie Charles Cros prizes, and the L. Bettencourt prize. However, it is in his quality as founding member of La Fenice that he has imposed himself as a major figure in the European musical landscape.
A much sought-after pedagogue, Jean Tubéry teaches cornett at the Paris Conservatoire Supérieur – C.R.R. (from 1990) and at the Lyon CNSM, as well as improvised ornamentation at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.
He is made Chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres, in 2001, and, in 2013, Chevalier de l’Ordre des Palmes Académiques for his educational and artistic work while in residence at Auxerre and in Burgundy.

La Fenice is in residence at Auxerre. The ensemble is supported by the DRAC Bourgogne-Franche-Comté – the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, the city of Auxerre, the Conseil Régional de Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, the Conseil Départemental de l’Yonne and its sponsor: Didier Lincet.
