Lamenti & Sospiri. Madrigals by Sigismondo d’India
17 February 2023/ Belgium / Antwerp
Along with Claudio Monteverdi, Sigismondo d’India was one of the most important composers to bridge the musical gap between the Renaissance and Baroque. He experienced his most productive period at court in Turin (1611-1623). D’India is one of the forefathers of the modern music style, accompanied monody. This means that a voice is accompanied by instruments, which is considered the ideal way to bring out the expressive qualities of a text. Cappella Mediterranea has proved on many an occasion that they can interpret the ‘sighs and lamentations’ of Italian music, with all its passions and emotions, like no other ensemble.
