Sheet Music: Score
Four Monteverdi realisations / by Paul Sarcich.
by Paul Sarcich (2015)
Three Monteverdi arias (Si dolce è'il tormento, Lamento d'Arianna, Con che soavità) and a duet (Pur ti miro, from the Coronation of Poppea) have been given modern realisations for an ensemble of voices, flutes, percussion and piano. Monteverdi's words and essential structures have been adhered to, and his music forms the basis for imaginative contemporary treatments of the arias, bringing out the romantic nature of them in a modern context.
