Le Poème Harmonique

Claire Lefilliâtre, soprano

Vincent Dumestre, guitar, theorbo, and music director

Acclaimed French early-music ensemble Le Poème Harmonique returns following two sell-out Opening Night concerts last season. Centered around Monteverdi’s revolutionary Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda, considered one of the finest madrigals of war, this season’s program contrasts Monteverdi’s dramatic cantata with a light-hearted piece by Marazzoli that parodies the same love-lorn tale. Showcasing works in stile rappresentativo—a style of singing developed in 16th century Italian opera that is more emotive than speech but less melodic than song—Le Poème Harmonique celebrates music as a means of connection and poetic communication.
