Recorded at the Cité de la Musique during the complete cycle of Monteverdi madrigals mounted in partnership with the Philharmonie de Paris and the Théâtre de Caen, the last volume in our trilogy probably contains the best-loved gems of a composer who had become maestro di cappella at St Mark’s in Venice, and finally entered the priesthood. Alongside the great operas that have survived from this period, the final madrigals methodically explore the multiple possibilities offered
by the rapidly developing practice of basso continuo and by an unprecedented exploitation of solo voices. And, in that respect, the celebrated 'Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda' forms a spectacular finale to our Monteverdian adventure!

"Choosing an hour of music to represent these two massive collections is a challenge...Like all the music we have made during this extraordinary project, our aim was to convince the listener not only of the beauty of this repertoire but of its astonishing modernity. Monteverdi’s music attempts to marry text and harmony so closely that we are capable of seeing into the protagonists’ hearts, of feeling their state of emotion viscerally whilst hearing their words...

I pay tribute to the wonderful singers and instrumentalist who have taken part in our five-year journey and thank them for all that they have taught me."
