The Full Monteverdi will receive its UK television premiere on 25th December at 20.00 on both SKYARTS 2 and SKYARTS HD. Head of Programming, Adrian Zak writes: “The Full Monteverdi was one of the first projects I was involved with here and it is one of those I am most proud of. We wanted to give it the slot it deserved.”

Given that Gramophone magazine’s critic, Richard Lawrence, recommended that viewers might “need to be in pretty good emotional shape to… survive the experience of watching it”, some may be surprised by the decision to broadcast the film on Christmas day. Director John La Bouchardiere, however, is sticking to his guns: “It will certainly be an unusual antidote to tinsel television but Christmas is about valuing relationships, so just cuddle up in front of the telly and share what’s left of the sherry.”
