I Fagiolini: Monteverdi - Fire & Ashes

Sinfonia from "Ballo Delle Ingrate"
Ardo, Avvampo
Rimanti in Pace
Ogni Amante E guerrier
Si Ch'io Vorrei Morire
Che Dar Piu Vi Poss'io
E Cosi, A Poco A Poco
Vorrei Baciarti, O Filli
Chiome D'oro
Batto, Qui Pianse Ergasto
Entrata from "Ballo Delle Ingrate"
Lagrime D'amante al Sepolcro Dell'amata
Tirsi e Clori

Monteverdi's madrigals are a theatre of the senses: touches, glances, scents, the textures of fabrics, of lips and skin, the shining gold of hair, the deep blue of eyes, the sounds and vistas of nature, the coolness of water, the sun's warmth, the ecstatic agony of fire and ice. The second volume in I Fagiolini's Monteverdi conspectus allows us to trace this evolution from the early Mantuan a cappella madrigals that made his reputation to the late concerted madrigals of the 1630s written for the Viennese court - styles seemingly worlds apart, yet both forged by the same desire, to confront and master afresh in each new work the ever-present tension between mere art and real life.
