MORE ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

Highly popular among music-lovers of the period, madrigals drew first from classicist texts as subjects for musical experimentation, helping to establish new aesthetic relationships between words and music by the 17th century. Composers wrote these animated and often daring compositions for two to eight voices, emphasizing secular subjects. Thanks to traveling musicians, madrigals spread throughout Europe, stimulating composers in countries including England and Germany to apply their own unique styles to the form, experimenting with new ways of using the human voice to tell stories and express emotions.

Running Time: approximately 75 minutes, no intermission
