“The man is a genius. Oh, I meant Stubbs. But Monteverdi, too, was no slouch.” – The Seattle Times
“If Pacific MusicWorks ever does a concert at St. James Cathedral, just go. Don’t even stop to look at what’s on the program. Actually, see them anywhere. And actually, do look at the program, because it’s bound to be brilliant.” John Sutherland, The Seattle Times, Dec.2, 2012
Claudio Monteverdi’s Eighth and last book of Madrigals includes his most revolutionary and stirring music. In these works, Love and War become indivisible metaphors that Monteverdi evokes with the most exciting musical devices of the period. Book 8 represents the pinnacle of 17th-century musical expression and still has the power to move listeners today.
