"This release guarantees both immediate and lasting satisfaction ... it belongs in any decent Monteverdi collection."
- American Record Guide

"Four Stars ... I Fagiolini are at their best in the quietly pastoral pieces ... (Lagrime d'amante) is given the most persuasive performance I have heard ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Under Robert Hollingworth’s inspired direction, the five singers squeeze all the emotion possible out of the suspensions, both diatonic and chromatic ... Hollingworth varies the scoring to excellent effect. Another unmissable disc ..."
- Gramophone

On this second volume devoted to Monteverdi, I Fagiolini and Robert Hollingworth continue to explore the full range of the composer's secular chamber works, from a cappella madrigals through duets to grander pieces with strings, presentIng the full extent of Monteverdi's genius in this genre. These styles may seem worlds apart, yet are forged by the same desire to confront and master the tension between mere art and real life.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
