About

On its onward journey across the major secular and sacred landmarks of Italian Renaissance polyphony, La Compagnia del Madrigale now turns its attention to Claudio Monteverdiís 1610 Vespers.

This new recording on Glossa presents the award-winning ensemble in its prime and in the company of Cantica Symphonia and La Pifarescha, all under the direction of Giuseppe Maletto: a veritable cornucopia of present-day early music performers!

The approach taken by these Italian musicians reflects their long experience with such music and covers all areas of the performance including whether to add plainchant, which instruments to use, and crucially, the choices relating to tempi and pitch. In the booklet essay Marco Bizzarini brings his deep understanding of the interplay of words and music in Italy in Monteverdiís time, underscoring the skill, experience and sheer musicality of La Compagnia del Madrigale.

What emerges is a refreshing, but natural, response to one of the great choral masterworks, for Monteverdi's 450th anniversary year.

Recorded at Basilica di San Maurizio, Pinerolo, Italy, in September and October 2016
