- The Brilliant Classics Monteverdi Edition is the most comprehensive collection of vocal and instrumental works by the great Renaissance master!

- Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) stands as a pivotal figure in the history of music, renowned for his groundbreaking contributions to both Renaissance and Baroque music. His life, works, and innovations have left an indelible mark on the evolution of Western classical music.

- Monteverdi gained prominence through his work at the Gonzaga court in Mantua, where he composed madrigals and operas that demonstrated his mastery of expressive harmonies and text-painting techniques.

- One of Monteverdi's most significant contributions was his advocacy for the "seconda pratica," a new musical style that prioritized the expressive power of the text. This marked a departure from the traditional Renaissance polyphony, allowing for greater freedom in harmonies and emphasizing the emotional impact of the music. His collection of madrigals exemplifies this style and cemented his reputation as a pioneer.

- In 1613, Monteverdi moved to Venice, where he became the maestro di cappella at St. Mark's Basilica. During his time in Venice, he continued to compose operas, culminating in his three surviving masterpieces: "L'Orfeo (1607)," "Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria" (1640), and "L'incoronazione di Poppea" (1642). These operas showcased his innovations in orchestration, vocal writing, and dramatic storytelling, laying the groundwork for the future development of opera.

- Monteverdi's experiments with new harmonies, dissonances, and emotional depth paved the way for the Baroque period and beyond. His work marked a turning point in music history, bridging the gap between the Renaissance and Baroque eras.

Played and sung by leading musicians in the field of Early Music: Sergio Vartolo, Le Nuove Musiche/Krijn Koetsveld and others.
