This recording from La Venexiana unchains those passions stirred originally with the arrival of one of the most dazzling masterworks of Baroque musical theatre: Il Nerone, ossia L'incoronazione di Poppea. For a long time attributed only to the exceptional talents of Claudio Monteverdi (1567- 1643), today this opera is considered additionally to be the result of the combined contributions of various composers over a period of time, among them being Francesco Cavalli (1602-1676), Benedetto Ferrari (c.1603-1681), and Francesco Sacrati (1605-1650). Following on directly from a recent La Venexiana staged production, Glossa and the ensemble of Claudio Cavina present here a highly-charged reading of the art of Monteverdi and his heritage, as transmitted by him and through composers after him - an art which created, enlivened and ultimately completely changed the musical world of their times.
