Monteverdi was a pioneer of the musical style we now call Baroque, but the Mass on this record is in classic Renaissance style and the music might have been written in the 1500s rather than the 1600s.

The “Claudio Monteverdi Choir” of Crema was founded in 1986 by Bruno Gini; its members, for the most part, are young musicians. In April 2007, the choir was invited to sing at Canterbury Cathedral. Cavalli is an early-Baroque master who provides an operatic link between Monteverdi and Handel.

L'Orfeo (SV 318), sometimes called L'Orfeo, favola in musica, is a late Renaissance/early Baroque opera by Claudio Monteverdi, with a libretto by Alessandro Striggio. It is based on the Greek legend of Orpheus, and tells the story of his descent to Hades and his fruitless attempt to bring his dead bride Eurydice back to the living world. Written in 1607 for a court performance during the annual Carnival at Mantua, L'Orfeo is one of the earliest music dramas still regularly performed. I put together my 10 versions of this masterpiece.

Monteverdi's three great operas (a fourth, Arianna, only survives in part) are among the earliest surviving examples of opera, and are still regular fixtures on the international operatic repertoire. Orfeo was composed in 1607, and performed that year during the carnival in Mantua. Not only is Orfeo the earliest opera in the repertoire, it was also one of the grandest of its time.

Il Ritorno dUlisse in Patria is based closely on the final books of Homers Odyssey and is hailed as the key work marking the threshold between the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Together with producer Klaus Michael Grüber, Nikolaus Harnoncourt strikes a new balance between musical polish and distillation of the essence of dramatic action. It is a kind of théâtre pauvre, which works with a few carefully chosen and powerful symbols, was how the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung reviewed the production. The main action takes place on little more than an angled revolving stage in front of a whitewashed wall which hints at the landscape of a Greek island.

This is a reissue, sans libretto and with the liner notes chopped down from 30 pages to 10, of the recording initially reviewed in Fanfare 31:1 by J. M. Weber. But when I got around to playing the recording, I was so completely blown away by it that I felt compelled to review it; and as the performance progressed it suddenly dawned on me that I was listening to the greatest performance of L’Orfeo yet committed to disc.
