MONTEVERDI Madrigals, Selections from Book 8,
Madrigals of Love and War

Multi-instrumental virtuoso, conductor, and musical polymath Jordi Savall offers a rare and precious gift to his many Berkeley fans—a special online presentation of selections from Monteverdi’s Madrigals of Love and War. With these sumptuous works, published late in his life, the composer proposed a groundbreaking model for how music could convey a wide range of emotion. The set includes a wealth of musical treasures, including the wondrous “Lamento della Ninfa” and “Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda.” Savall’s recordings of these works, made 25 years ago, are still widely recognized as touchstones, praised for the performers’ vivid colorations, purity of tone, and sensitive accompaniment. “These madrigals are among the supreme glories of 17th-century vocal art, and Savall does them proud. Whether making love or sallying boisterously into battle, his singers and instrumentalists bring out every musical and expressive nuance” (Chicago Tribune). Savall has gathered his musicians for a special recording session in Catalonia, Spain, for this Cal Performances at Home presentation.
