GESUALDO, C.: Madrigals, Book 1 (Madrigali libro primo, 1594) (Delitiae Musicae, Longhini)

Carlo Gesualdo, Prince of Venosa, became famous for two reasons: the bloody double murder of his first wife and her lover and his passionate and erotic view of profane love. Brimming with often astonishing and sometimes unpredictable melodic and tonal contrasts to express the agonies and ecstasies of love, Gesualdo’s Madrigals show him to have been one of the most inventive and eccentric musical minds of his age. This is the first disc in a series of the complete recordings of Gesualdo’s madrigals.
