About

La Compagnia del Madrigale’s subtle, yet powerful advocacy of great Italian madrigals continues with Marenzio's 'Quinto Libro di Madrigali a sei voci' from 1591. Their previous recordings, including the recent award-winning 'Primo Libro', have demonstrated their fresh approach, imbued with invaluable years of experience in other groups such as La Venexiana and Concerto Italiano.

Marenzio’s 'Quinto Libro' was dedicated to Virginio Orsini, Duke of Bracciano, on the occasion of his marriage to Flavia Peretti: a wedding album full of the latest musical and poetical techniques.

La Compagnia del Madrigal’s rendition of Marenzio’s madrigals is captured by, and presented with, the Glossa production hallmarks you would expect.

Reviews

There can be little doubt that right now La Compagnia del Madrigale is worldwide the best ensemble for the performance of Italian madrigals … The result is a very compelling disc. If you love Italian madrigals you definitely should not miss it.  Johan van Veen
