Baroque Voices 39 - Monteverdi: Il quarto libro de madrigali, 1603
Aesthetically, the miracle of these pieces lies in the perfect adequation between music and text. Each vocal line – moaning, sighing, charming, imploring, whispering, exalting – depicts the words. Here Concerto Italiano makes that aesthetic into an absolute art.
