Monteverdi 450th Birthday

Monteverdi is considered to be the father of Opera, even if the first lyrical œuvre was composed by Jacopo Peri. On the occasion of his 450th birthday, we’re showcasing the most beautiful Monteverdian masterpieces: lyrical pieces under Nikolaus Harnoncourt and sacred music with Paul Agnew and Les Arts florissants.

A journey through time!
