MONTEVERDI
Quel sguardo sdegnosetto     

CACCINI                                                                  
Perfidissimo volto                                                                                          
Amarilli, mia bella
Movetevi a pieta
Udite Amante
Amor, io parto                                                           
Se ridete gioiose                                             
Belle rose porporine  

STROZZI
Desideri vani                                                                          

CACCINI
O dolce fonte del mio pianto amaro                                                  
S’io vivo anima mia                                                   
Filli, mirando il cielo             
Amor, ch’attendi        
                       

D’INDIA                                                                                                                                           
Vorrei baciarti, o filli                                                                                     
Intenerite voi                                                  
Riede la primavera                                                                
Che farai, Meliseo
Voi baciatrici 
Ecco Filli mia bella                                       

STROZZI                                                       
Donna non sa

ABOUT THE EVENT

Join the voice department students and faculty as they present a wide range of music of Caccini’s era. Included will be solos and duets of Barbara Strozzi, Sigismundo d’India, Giulio Caccini (in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of his death) and Claudio Monteverdi’s Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda.  

This event is part of “Masters of Italian Vocal Music”, a 3 day festival of Italian Vocal Music of the 17th Century.

The Conservatory would like to thank artist Mr. Chong Fahcheong, for his generous loan of “Once Upon a Tree”. The artist has given us the liberty to interact with the sculpture and to present it as a part of this performance.
