Event description

Description

Two love stories – ten singers – one unforgettable experience

Claudio Monteverdi’s Fifth Book of Madrigals is arguably the most famous of all Italian madrigal collections. But the controversy surrounding its daring new musical style – christened the seconda pratica by Monteverdi – has obscured its dramatic narrative. For the book contains two interlocking stories: two pairs of seemingly doomed young lovers – one reconciled at the point of death, the other redeemed through a last-minute discovery. The Kenderdine Ensemble brings these love stories to life, with each tale performed by a different five-voice consort.
