Der Aussendung beigefügt sind Statemens von Monteverdi Choir and Orchestras und Sir John Eliot Gardiner. Der Monteverdi Choir wurde bei den Oper! Awards 2024 in Amsterdam als bester Chor ausgezeichnet.
The Monteverdi Choir and Orchestras said: „We are pleased to announce that the forthcoming tour of Handel’s Israel in Egypt with the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists will be conducted by Peter Whelan. In an agreement between the board and management of the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestras and Sir John Eliot Gardiner, we can confirm that John Eliot has decided to extend his time away from public music-making, and it is our shared aim that he will be in a position to return to conduct the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestras later in the year.”

Sir John Eliot Gardiner said: „As announced by the board and management of the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestras today, I am extending my time away from public music-making until later in the year in the wake of last August’s incident – something for which I have accepted full responsibility and profoundly regret. In the meantime, I am proud of the members of the three Monteverdi ensembles and management for bringing to fruition the concerts that were planned between August and now, and I wish to thank Peter Whelan and Dinis Sousa for taking over the forthcoming projects which mark the start of a year celebrating the Choir’s 60th birthday.” (SFS)
