Celebrating the 400th anniversary of Barbara Strozzi’s birth, a journey into the music of one of the first female composers to publish music under her own name, setting it alongside that of two of her most important contemporary influences, Monteverdi and Carissimi. From the exquisite, anguished lament for a betrayed love in her L’Eraclito amoroso to Monteverdi’s sensual Lettera amorosa and the fierce, indignant torment of Carissimi’s Apritevi, inferni, this concert explores the emotionally-charged, complex and deeply personal musical worlds of these monumental composers.
