Profeti della Quinta presents psalm settings by Claudio Monteverdi and Salamone Rossi, both employed at Mantua’s Gonzaga court. The Israeli ensemble, directed by Elam Rotem, focuses on the vocal repertoire of the late Renaissance, specializing in Hebrew vocal music. Tonight’s program was recorded live in concert June 25, 2021, as part of the Thuringia Bach Festival, whose theme for the 2021 season was “1700 years of Jewish life in Germany and 900 years in Thuringia.”

Thanks to WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, tonight’s program will be available as a stream for 30 days following the broadcast. A blue “Listen” button will appear when the stream is accessible.
