"I return to him again and again and I feel at home with him." Monteverdi was a revolutionary master of motets and madrigals who created the first great Italian operas and whose music unites the vocal polyphony of the Renaissance and the textures of the early Baroque. For him, poetry is the basis of all music, and the emotions expressed in the words have to be brought out by musical means."
