Siam Sinfonietta's popular series of intimate concerts at the Banyan Tree Ballroom continues on Sunday, April 25 with a program of triumphant music for multiple choirs and ensembles, covering two centuries of musical history.
In the 17th century, there was an innovation at the Cathedral of St Mark's in Venice — choirs and orchestras began to be placed in different balconies and corners of the space, allowing the sound to assail the senses from every direction. Meanwhile, 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.
