Monteverdi: Canzonette a tre voci, Venice 1584 / Franco Radicchio, Armoniosoincanto

Album Summary

>Monteverdi, Claudio : Canzonettas for 3 voices, SV 1-21
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The genre "canzonette" is the light version of the madrigal: using only 3 voices it is playful and popular in character, based on secular poems in a strophic form of three or four verses with ritornello. Monteverdi composed his "Canzonette a tre voci" when he was seventeen years old, in order to gain recognition with a wider audience, and they have proven to be a perfect preparation for the more serious and complex works he later embarked upon such as the madrigals and the operas. These delightful works are performed with the right light hearted mood and dramatic impact by Armoniosoincanto, conducted by Franco Radicchia, using a rich continuo ensemble consisting of flutes, viola da braccia, viola da gamba, theorbo, baroque guitar and harpsichord.
