Benedetto sia ‘l giorno e l’ora e ‘l punto: madrigalen op teksten van Petrarca

Passionate Italian madrigals by the cream of Renaissance composers including Marenzio, Lassus, de Rore, de Wert, Tromboncino and Monteverdi. Petrarch was head-over-heels in love with the beautiful Laura, although she was married to someone else. Even after her death, he continued to write sublimely beautiful poetry for his unattainable beloved. RossoPorpora, a young Italian ensemble that impressed us at the festival in 2014, sings with great passion about sorrowful love, broken relationships, desire and tormented, unattainable love.
