Celebrate Montiverdi’s 450th Birthday

We have invited Andrew Shultze to direct for our March 18 meeting, offering music from Claudio Monteverdi and featuring selections from L’ Orfeo and Scherzi Musicali, both from 1607, as well as L’Incoronazione di Poppea from 1642 in honor of Monteverdi’s 450th birthday. We will discuss early Italian Baroque ornamentation, recorder technique, and performance practice, as found in the writings of Monteverdi, Giulio Caccini, Francesco Rognoni and other contemporary sources.
