Description - The Letters of Claudio Monteverdi by Claudio Monteverdi
The thoughts of a master musician of the Baroque are seen in the light of his letters to friends and employers. Written from Cremona, Mantua, Parma, and Venice, this correspondence illuminates the colourful background to the composer's personal activities and his creative career. Unusual insights into his operas, church music and madrigals appear in the commentaries as well as in the letters themselves. Long unavailable, Denis Stevens's classic edition of these letters appears here in a completely revised and reset edition which takes account of much recent Monteverdi scholarship.
