Product description

Product Description

On its onward journey across the major secular and sacred landmarks of Italian Renaissance polyphony, La Compagnia del Madrigale now turns its attention to Claudio Monteverdi s 1610 Vespers. This new recording on Glossa presents the award-winning [Gramophone 2014] ensemble in its prime and in the company of Cantica Symphonia and La Pifarescha, all under the direction of Giuseppe Maletto: a veritable cornucopia of present-day early music performers! The approach taken by these Italian musicians reflects their long experience with such music and covers all areas of the performance including whether to add plainchant, which instruments to use, and crucially, the choices relating to tempi and pitch. In the booklet essay Marco Bizzarini brings his deep understanding of the interplay of words and music in Italy in Monteverdi s time, underscoring the skill, experience and sheer musicality of La Compagnia del Madrigale. What emerges is a refreshing, but natural, response to one of the great choral masterworks, for Monteverdi's 450th anniversary year.

Review

'This is a Vespers to catch attention … What really makes this recording special, however, is a daring interpretative approach that makes it easily one of the most individual and distinctive Vespers on record … a performance that deserves a hearing; like a Klemperer Beethoven symphony, it shows a faith in the build of its music that says everything can be inspected and savoured, nothing needs to be hurried.' --Lindsay Kemp Gramophone, July 2017
