Claudio Monteverdi’s Madrigals of Love and War transformed a venerable genre - the Renaissance part song - into dramatic scenes that rival the flamboyant art of Caravaggio or Bernini. By updating an old musical form, Monteverdi created a repertoire that is both timeless and singular: few madrigals from any age hold a candle to these masterworks for multiple voices and instruments.

Featured artists include Erica Schuller, soprano; Amia Langer, soprano; Michael Skarke, countertenor; Steven Brennfleck, tenor; Thomas O'Neill, tenor; and Enrico Lagasca, bass-baritone.
