In stil moderno: Steven Devine directs Castello, Strozzi & Claudio Monteverdi

Wednesday 14th April

7:30 pm

Academy of Ancient Music
Steven Devine director & harpsichord

Had Dario Castello left us a large-scale composition (an Orfeo or a Vespers) his genius would likely be recognised today alongside that of his colleague Claudio Monteverdi. Pity though it might be only to have been left his two books of instrumental music, the 30 works contained therein are nothing short of a revolution. Daring, innovative and virtuosic, Castello’s sonatas are an artistic triumph surpassed perhaps only by their commercial success in early 17th century Venice. AAM Music Director Steven Devine leads an intrepid exploration of the composer’s unbounded imagination, offset by works of his contemporaries.

Barbara Strozzi L’eraclito amoroso & Lagrime mie
