CLAUDIO MONTEVERDI
Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda

The epic struggles of love and war have long been fertile ground for poets and composers, no less so in Italy during the seventeenth century. In further celebration of the 450 year anniversary of the birth of Claudio Monteverdi, we will offer selections from his duets for two tenors, love laments from Monteverdi’s contemporaries Barbara Strozzi and Sigismundo d’India, and the epic battle scene of Tancredi and Clorinda as presented in Monteverdi’s seldom heard Combattimento.
