About the Event

In this program, Utopia highlights the great "Mantuan" composers De Wert and Monteverdi. Jacques de Wert, born in Weert (Antwerp), was active in Italy for most of his life. In Mantua he was the mentor of the great Claudio Monteverdi. With De Wert as a pioneer, Monteverdi made the switch from polyphony to the early baroque, where text expression and effect prevail over the musical line. The love madrigals in this program, including "Lamento della Ninfa", take you on an expressive journey between desire and sorrow.
