Madrigals in Disguise - Voces Suaves at the MA festival
Monday 9 August
20:00, Concertgebouw de Brugge, Belgium
With the austere, dramatic music of his celebrated Lamento d’Arianna, Monteverdi proved he was unrivalled at turning emotions into music. This did not deter his contemporaries from writing new religious texts to his highly expressive madrigals. In this new programme, Voces Suaves explore Monteverdi’s delicate madrigals alongside these equally creative ‘contrafacta’.
