Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Lamento d'Ariana was incontestably Monteverdi's most famous composition during his own lifetime, and he himself considered it to be the only one worthy of leaving to posterity. So it is not by accident that no more than this memorable scene from the opera Arianna of 1608 should have survived. Monteverdi deployed the full range of the experience he acquired from the burgeoning form of the opera in his latter madrigals. Examples of some of the most perfect of these marvellous works may be heard on this record.
