Reviews 2010-2011: (US) Worth a Reprise at Age 401 -- Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 -- Review by Steve Smith (New York Times)

Contributed by Admin on Jan 07, 2011 - 02:47 AM

Almost exactly a year ago, the New York soprano Jolle Greenleaf, the Boston violinist Scott Metcalfe and a couple of dozen close associates from around the country presented the fruit of what they called the Green Mountain Project: a performance of Monteverdi’s grand and glorious Vespers of 1610, mounted in observance of the work’s 400th anniversary.

A tremendous popular and critical success, the concert might have been the culmination of a one-off labor of love. 

Instead, evidently, it was the start of a beautiful friendship. On Sunday evening Ms. Greenleaf, Mr. Metcalfe and nearly all the musicians involved in the original Green Mountain Project — its name a play on Monteverdi’s — repeated their feat at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, near Times Square.
