These famous English baroque specialists and their historic conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner will lead us on a fascinating path along the production, both sacred and profane, of the late Monteverdi. In his Libri di madrigali, from the sixth to the eighth (1614-1638), the “representative” monody breaks out of the complex texture of Renaissance polyphony, while the posthumous collection Selva morale e spirituale (1640) is a huge compendium that reflects the variety of styles he employed while on duty at Cappella Marciana and in Venetian private circles.
