Program

Luca Marenzio

O verdi selve

Dolorosi martir

Cruda Amarilli

Ne fero sdegno omai

Giaches de Wert

Vezzosi augelli

L'anima mia ferita

Fra le dorate chiome

Pomponio Nenna

D'ogni ben casso e privo

O gradite, o sprezzate

Amorose faville

Luzzasco Luzzaschi

Ahi, cruda sorte mia

Lunge da te cor mio

Itene mie querele

Dolorosi martir

Sigismondo D'India

Quell'angellin che canta

Io mi son giovinetta

Claudio Monteverdi

Cruda Amarilli

Io mi son giovinetta

A Dio Florida bella

Quell'augellin che canta

E così a poco a poco

Rinaldo Alessandrini and his Concerto Italiano have won international acclaim particularly for their interpretations of the works of Claudio Monteverdi and for a number of rediscoveries of Italian composers of the 17th and 18th centuries. For their concert in Berlin, the program—performed by an intimate lineup of six singers and two instrumentalists—includes a selection of madrigals by Monteverdi and some of his lesser known contemporaries.
