MONTEVERDI Tasso Madrigals • Rinaldo Alessandrini, dir; Concerto Italiano • BRILLIANT 93811 (51:23 Text and Translation)

This was originally issued as Tactus 56130303 (15:2). Even at the time, it seemed to mark a departure from a program of Monteverdi madrigals recorded in complete published books on this label, a course soon pursued on several successive labels by Alessandrini himself, though he still is not finished. By way of exception, this program is devoted entirely to madrigals drawn from the first four books set to texts of Torquato Tasso, the only exception being a text of Guarini to which Tasso wrote a response and a counter-reponse, with all three poems set in Monteverdi’s Book 1.

While Tasso lived at the Mantuan court, he left before Monteverdi arrived and there is no indication that they ever met. But the great poet’s work appealed to the composer, something best appreciated by hearing these settings as a group. Alessandrini has proved his mettle in five complete books so far, but selections from the first and third books can be heard only here.
