Hor che’l ciel e la terra

Zefiro torna
Tirsi e Clori, Ballo

On the 450th anniversary of his birth, a programme to celebrate Monteverdi’s unique expressive genius - as powerful now as in 17th century Italy. Monteverdi specialists I Fagiolini bring to life a ravishing selection of his music: from his life in Mantua the passionate madrigals that gave birth to his first opera, L’Orfeo, and then a staged performance of its powerful messenger’s scene.

Then, from Venice, a rarely heard dance suite, erotic miniatures and finally a 'firework' from the famous collection ‘Madrigals of war and love’, pushing the boundaries of expression.

Venue: Barber Concert Hall
