Monteverdi was the first great composer whose correspondence survives. It began when he became director of music at the court of Mantua and wrote to court functionaries on business - and continued to the end of his life. It gives a fascinating insight into the life of a composer at the beginning of the 1600s, and an idea of Monteverdi's preoccupations and interests, including alchemy, the Inquisition, and, above all, his own music. Today's programme includes excerpts from:
Orfeo English Baroque Soloists, conductor John Eliot Gardiner
Vespers New London Consort, conductor Philip Pickett Madrigals (Book 8)
Glyndebourne Festival Chorus, conductor Raymond Leppard
