Lamento d’Arianna – The Italian Madrigal from de Rore to Monteverdi

 

Founded in Israel and based in Switzerland, the ensemble Profeti della Quinta continues to thrill the early music scene with its expressive sound and authentic, engaging presentation. The singers particularly like hunting out unknown vocal compositions from the 16th and 17th centuries, such as the first polyphonic works in the Hebrew language. In their programme at a cappella, they’ll be tracing the development of the Italian madrigal in that era – from Cipriano de Rore and Luzzasco Luzzaschi to Carlo Gesualdo and Claudio Monteverdi. They’ll be revealing not just the stylistic changes over the years but also the links between generations of composers.
