Orazio Vecchi ‘L’Amfiparnasso’
“Comedy for the ear and the eye” is what its author, the priest and jack-ofall-trades composer Orazio Vecchi (1550-1605) called this sparkling set of scenic madrigals. Published in Venice in 1597, L’Amfiparnasso (ie, the place where the muses waste most of their time) uses familiar Commedia dell’arte characters as a pretext for superb musical entertainment.
Expect a rollercoaster of love triangles, along with the usual trickery and treachery, set amongst a series of seriously flawed but suitably recognizable characters.
