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

About

The Arts Florissants continue to perform Monteverdi's complete madrigals. For this concert they perform the Second Book.

Among the twenty madrigals that are part of Monteverdi's Second Book (that was published in 1590), nine are musical translations on poems written by Torquato Tasso, who was already considered in his lifetime as the greatest poet in Italy. However Torquato Tasso gradually sinked into madness. He was committed in 1577 after a paranoia crisis, then again in 1579 during seven years in Sant'Anna de Ferrare hospital.
