Programme: Carlo Gesualdo, Giaches de Wert, Luzzasco Luzzaschi, Luca Marenzio, Claudio Monteverdi

Carlo Gesualdo is one of the most unusual figures in the history of music. Some praise him as a forerunner of Wagnerian chromaticism and Schoenberg's atonality, but his contemporaries admired his music for its beauty, expressivity, contrapuntal mastery and the clever use of artifices such as unusual modulations and dissonances. He valued artistic perfection and expression of affects above being pleasing to the ear. La Compagnia del Madrigale is the leading vocal ensemble specialising in Italian madrigals.
