Duets of Love and War
Ogni amanti è guerrier
Ardo, e scoprir
Se vittorie sì belle
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, 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 will be performed.
