CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
About the Show/Event
Information for The Gesualdo Six - Flower of the Italian Madrigal at Cadogan Hall, Inner London (Concert). Trace the evolution of the madrigal from Claudio Monteverdi to Gyorgy Ligeti in this entrancing programme. Monteverdi led the way in a new expressive style of composition, emphasising words just as much as harmonies - and breaking the rules as he went. Palestrina, Gesualdo and Marenzio feature alongside several works of the Il Trionfo di Dori, a collection of madrigals composed in honour of the wife of a Venetian nobleman. Ligeti's Nonsense Madrigals parody earlier madrigals by using old compositional techniques as vehicles for humorous portrayals of texts from children's literature by Lewis Carroll and William Brighty Rands.
