The Dinner Party: Barbara Strozzi meets Claudio Monteverdi @ Eliot Church | Newton | Massachusetts | United States

Once again we gather “after dinner” for an intimate feast of music. Our small group of singers and players will transport you to a Venetian palazzo, in a relaxed atmosphere of friendly competition during an imagined meeting of two great musical minds. And you’ll be there, too! Hear Strozzi’s amazingly chromatic and romantic madrigals for 2-5 voices, Monteverdi’s similar, plus his amazing duets for both men and women (“Zefiro torno”!) and more. With 6 singers, and special guests on baroque violin and gamba, and our own Catherine Liddell, theorbo/baroque guitar.
