The young vocal group Vox Luminis is currently enjoying a steep advance towards international fame. They have been widely acclaimed by the music press, winning the 2012 International Classical Music Award in the category ‘baroque vocal’ to boot! Conceived especially for the Adriatic festival edition of Laus Polyphoniae, the ensemble will offer Renaissance music by the Croatian composer Julije Javetić (Giulio Schiavetto).
Croatian Renaissance music resounds only rarely on concert stages today, but Vox Luminis proves its mettle by giving it pride of place. Furthermore, the ensemble commissioned musicological research around Javetić’s madrigals. Some of these songs will be performed again for the first time in the modern age at this very concert. A world premiere!
