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

About

The complete Monteverdi madrigals series, initiated by Paul Agnew and the singers from Les Arts Florissants, continues at the Cité de la musique and live on medici.tv!

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.
