Notes & Reviews:
Early Music Today, December 2014
Don't hesitate to snap up this limited edition box-set from Glossa - one of the most important Monteverdi releases of recent years.
The extraordinary series of 1998-2006 recordings of the nine published books of madrigals by Monteverdi, from Claudio Cavina and the Italian ensemble La Venexiana, is now available in limited-time and limited-number boxed set form from Glossa. This multi-award-winning cycle set new standards in textual declamation, rhetorical color and harmonic refinement. Also included is the Live in Corsica album of Monteverdi madrigals (2002) and a newly-written essay by original series essayist Stefano Russomanno - of which all, along with full texts and translations in PDF form, are also included.
