Claudio Monteverdi and
the World of Madrigals

Monteverdi was born in Cremona in 1567 and died in Venice in 1643. This Italian composer already had a few of his madrigals published at sixteen. At that age, he was also considered to be a first rate viol player and organist.

La favola d’Orfeo was Monteverdi’s first opera, produced in 1607. As for his madrigals, he wrote them over a forty year period. Claudio was a master of polyphony, melody and harmonic boldness. He wrote, among other things, operas, ballets, sacred and secular music. His most famous works include Vespers (1610) and L’incoronazione di Poppea (1642).

An Amazing Monteverdi Fact

Monteverdi worked within each music genre of his time and improved them through his vast talent and imagination. He was not revolutionary, but a genius nonetheless.
