To bring this year’s Palau 100 concert series to a close, British conductor John Eliot Gardiner returns to visit the Palau de la Música Catalana, this time to lead the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists. These iconic performers with a wide and diverse repertoire will, on this occasion, be offering a programme dedicated entirely to German Baroque, with motets by Schein and Schütz, founder of the great Germanic musical tradition that culminates with J. S. Bach, whose most famous cantata, Christ lag in Todesbanden, will also be performed.
