Madrigals from Books 6, 7 and 8
R 150,- / € 18,-
The current recording results from the consort's Monteverdi Project at the Fugard Theatre in Cape Town. Interpreting Baroque madrigals as an essentially dramatic form, the group presents its first CD with a most spirited and boisterous rendition of these ancient, but by now once again well-known and well-loved musical miniatures.
The disc contains a bonus video-track which features an animated translation of one of the madrigals.
