A Milestone Series from Les Arts Florissants
Les Arts Florissants, led by conductor Paul Agnew, launch a three-album series devoted to the Madrigals of Claudio Monteverdi. Each volume will be associated with one of the cities that have marked the course of the composer. This first release (Vol.2), available November 11, is dedicated to Mantua and features Madrigals from books IV, V and VI. Subsequent releases will be devoted to Cremona (Vol.1, Books I, II and III) and Venice (Vol.3, Books VII and VIII).
To complete this release conductor Paul Agnew presents a series of five companion videos.
