NDR Das Alte Werk: Concerto Italiano
2017 is a Monteverdi year. The »divine Claudio«, as he was called by his many admirers during his lifetime, was born 450 years ago in Cremona, Northern Italy. The exquisite ensemble Concerto Italiano, with Rinaldo Alessandrini at its head, can rightfully claim to be Monteverdi’s best representative on earth today. They will celebrate their birthday boy with highlights from his most spectacular madrigals and instrumental movements.
