In this 1997’s recording, William Christie, along with a superb cast of soloists and his ensemble Les Arts florissants, convey Monteverdi’s musical ideas, textures and styles in exquisite detail.
“There is a warmth and generosity here that are undeniably attractive […] everything is done at the level of skill and musicality that we have come to expect from Christie and Les Arts florissants.” - Gramophone
