1. Monteverdi, Claudio: Biography
Brief biographical note.
Claudio Monteverdi 1567-1643
Claudio Monteverdi began his musical education under Ingegneri as a boy chorister in the cathedral of Cremona. He was employed by Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua, in about 1590. At the duke's death in 1613, Monteverdi became Maestro di Cappella at St. Mark's Cathedral in Venice. Monteverdi is remembered today primarily for his contributions to opera (including Orfeo and L'incoronazione di Poppea), and to the development of what later came to be known as the baroque style (his fifth book of madrigals being the first to employ basso continuo . Monteverdi also wrote Masses motets , Vespers, and Magnificats

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search This article is about the 16th–17th century composer. For other uses of Monteverdi, see Monteverdi (disambiguation) Claudio Monteverdi in 1640 by Bernardo Strozzi Claudio Giovanni Antonio Monteverdi [ˈklaudjo monteˈverdi] ; 15 May 1567 (baptized) – 29 November 1643) was an Italian composer gambist , and singer. Monteverdi's work, often regarded as revolutionary, marked the transition from the Renaissance style of music to that of the Baroque period. He developed two individual styles of composition: the new basso continuo technique of the Baroque and the heritage of Renaissance polyphony. Enjoying fame in his lifetime, he wrote one of the earliest operas L'Orfeo , which is still regularly performed.

Claudio Monteverdi
with Jan Swafford In this edition of Milestones of the Millennium , commentator Jan Swafford explains why Claudio Monteverdi is one of the most important composers in the history of Western classical music. Monteverdi bestrode the musical eras we call Renaissance and Baroque, and was the first composer to develop opera to its full dramatic and musical potential. Monteverdis revolutionary innovations have influenced 20th century composers like Igor Stravinsky, while foreshadowing the modern idea of the song. Born in Cremona in 1567, Monteverdi composed a book of madrigals by the time he was 17. At age 24, he became a musician in the court of Mantova, where he eventually became music director. By his mid-40s, he would be the most celebrated composer in Italy. Meanwhile, around the year 1600, a group of Florentine intellectuals introduced their fledgling concept of opera, an imitation of ancient Greek drama. In 1607, Monteverdi took this rudimentary approach and turned it on its head with, arguably, the first true opera, LOrfeo. His revolutionary debut defied all existing musical convention.

Major Works:

Cruda Amarilli
Book VIII (Madrigals of War and Love): Hor che'l ciel e la terra Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda
Operas: Orfeo Vi ricorda o boschi ombrosi In un fiorito prato Arianna: Lament Il ritorno d'Ulisse L'Incoronazione di Poppea Vespers Mass: In illo tempore Other Information: Although a birthdate is not known, Monteverdi was baptized on May 15, 1567. He was among the first of the Ars Nova composers. The development of Monteverdi's style can be easily seen in his madrigals. The early ones (Books 1-4) are in the old Renaissance contrapuntal style of four equal voices, but after 1603 (Book 5) he began to write madrigals with an added basso continuo part and an exalted soprano part. Books 6-9 mix the basso continuo/homphonic/concertato style with the old contrapuntal style. In Book 7 he used a Romanesca and other ground bass forms like the chaconne and passacaglia. Book 8 contains his Madrigal of War and Love which displays a range of human passions in the stile concitato (agitated style of repeated 16th notes, tremelo, rapid scale passages, pizzicato, dotted rhythms, no bel canto but more like recitative in style).
