In the 17th century, composers of the late renaissance were heralding new advances in color and rhythm.

The concert begins with music for multiple choirs and ensembles by Giovanni Gabrieli — pieces written for choirs divided into sixteen and nineteen parts and vituoso brass.

We move from Venice to Dresden where half a century later, Heinrich Schütz applies these cosmic techniques and novel orchestral coloristic devices in a masterpiece of word painting, his multichoral setting of Psalm 150.

The concert closes with Beethoven's transcendent Seventh Symphony, which many musicians consider his greatest, including the iconic Allegretto which has featured as the soundtrack in a dozen films.
