Solo e pensoso

Solo e pensoso presents an anthology from the madrigals of Monteverdi, Marenzio, Luzzaschi and Cipriano de Rore around one of the most beautiful poets of all time: Francesco Petrarch. It is these composers who not only breathed new life into his image-rich poetry of the trecento from the mid-sixteenth and into the seventeenth century but also made it immortal.
