Arianna's Lament 2
Italian Renaissance madrigals from Rore to Monteverdi
Deserted by her faithless lover, Arianna rages in a mixture of anger and self-pity. Monteverdi knew that his music for this operatic scene was too good to lose and arranged it as an intense sequence of madrigals, but drama was nothing new to the madrigal composers of Renaissance Italy. Profeti della Quinta (winners of the YEM International Young Artists Competition in 2011), makes a welcome return to present Monteverdi’s music alongside expressive creations by Rore, Luzzaschi, and Gesualdo – a man once described as ‘madly obsessed with music’.
‘The sound is of such a thrilling beauty, that one forgets time and place… emphasized dynamics and perfect diction characterize the manner in which ensemble Profeti della Quinta breathes new life into early music.’ Wiesbadener Tagblatt
