(Recent researches in the music of the baroque era)

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Although Peri is known as composer of the first operas, his chamber settings for one to three voices and continuo reveal that he was also a leading exponent of other styles of the early Baroque. Indeed, his best solo madrigals and arias offered Florentine monody a new dramatic power and structural integrity. This complete edition of Peri's vocal chamber works sheds new light on his career and demonstrates his importance for the "new music" of the 1600s.
