One committed a scandalous murder. One almost became a "gift" to the King of France. One, now famous for his operas, joined the priesthood. Yet all three spent a significant portion of their composing careers writing madrigals. Join us for an evening of daring harmonies, soaring melodies, and texts describing beauty, pain, and passion as we explore the five-voice madrigals of Gesualdo, Marenzio, and Monteverdi.
