Bright Air, Brilliant Fire: The Madrigals of Claudio Monteverdi
Hanson Dyer Hall - Level 3
The Ian Potter Southbank Centre
43 Sturt Street, Southbank
The music of the early 17th century madrigal brought new life and meaning to music. Filled with texts and harmonies both punishing and thrilling, heart-rending and consoling, Monteverdi's madrigals remind us of the depth of a form that went far beyond the 'hey-nonny nonnies' of bygone eras.
Featuring the Early Music Ensemble and directed by Stephen Grant.
