Programme Note

Monteverdi wrote his madrigals throughout a long and illustrious life - ranging from the brevity and harmonic delicacy of the first book for five solo voices and no continuo, all the way through to the magnificence of Book 8 - complete with obbligato violins and a plethora of continuo instruments. The uniting themes of love, loss and desire are vividly brought to life through Monteverdi's pen and often exquisite texts. Despite them being written over 400 years ago, they speak with immediacy and eternal truth to 21st-century ears.
