Les Arts Florissants perform Monteverdi: Madrigals, Book IV The complete Monteverdi madrigals – Paul Agnew, conductor

About

Beginning of a second season for the complete Monteverdi madrigals, a project initiated by tenor Paul Agnew and followed by singers of Les Arts Florissants: an even broadcast live from the Cité de la musique in Paris!

It is a gigantic project, programmed on several seasons, that Paul Agnew has initiated. The goal is to give a live performance of the eight books of madrigals by Monteverdi, one at a time, in the right order, and in their complete version. And for each concert, Paul Agnew also picks a few madrigals by other composers, who might have been a source of inspiration for Monteverdi.
