Night: Stories Of Lovers & War / Monteverdi
ALESSANDRINI CONCERTO ITALIANO
2017 marks the 450th anniversary of Claudio Monteverdi, one of the fathers of modern music, who gave a major impulse to expressivity and individuality of expression. Rinaldo Alessandrini's benchmark recordings of the madrigals, the Vespers, L'Orfeo, etc., contributed to unanimously establish the Roman conductor and his ensemble Concerto Italiano as the leading ambassadors of Monteverdi today. Notte. Storie di amanti e guerrieri is a selection of highlights from Monteverdi's most famous madrigals and instrumental movements: Lamento della ninfa, Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda, Ho'r che'l ciel e la terra, sinfonias from Monteverdi's three operas etc. A heart-stretching program in which Rinaldo Alessandrini's science of light, emotions and colros is at its highest.
