CLAUDIO MONTEVERDI Born: May 15, 1567, Cremona, Italy
Died: November 29, 1643, Venice
Italian composer. Leading composer of the late Renaissance and Early Baroque, and the first great composer of operas.
Although Monteverdi can be viewed as both a composer of the Renaissance and of the Baroque, there is a continuity that runs through his works in both styles. Monteverdi was a dramatic composer, bringing a depth of meaning from the text he set that turned each of his pieces into a convincing musical and dramatic statement.
Monteverdi's career began at an early age. He published his first pieces, a collection of three-voice motets, at the age of fifteen. By 1591, when he went to Mantua as a musician for the Gonzaga court, he had already published books of "spritual madrigals" (1583), canzonettas (1584), and his first two books of madrigals (1587 and 1590). In Mantua he continued writing madrigals, and in 1607 produced his first work in the new genre of opera, his setting of Orfeo . In 1613, he was appointed maestro di cappella at St. Mark's Cathedral in Venice. He remained in Venice for the rest of his life, writing music in all genres, including his final opera, L'incoronazione di Poppea
Monteverdi wrote in a style that he called the seconda prattica , a description he used to separate himself from the more conservative tradition of Palestrina and his contemporaries. For Monteverdi, the starting point was always the words. Whatever mood the words might suggest, or whatever effect a single word needed to convey, was reflected in the music. This is the basic idea of word painting used in madrigals throughout the century. For Monteverdi, however, it was not an isolated effect, but an absolute guiding force. This ideal permeated his madrigals and found new expression in the dramatic language of opera. All these techniques work together to make Monteverdi one of the true geniuses of Western music.

Claudio Monteverdi - The First Truly Great Composer

Claudio Giovanni Antonio Monteverdi, born in Cremona, Italy, was an outstanding figure in the development and perfection of early baroque music. He studied music with the celebrated Veronese theoretician Marco Antonio Ingegneri. At the age of 15, Monteverdi composed his first work, a set of three-part motets, and by 1605 he had composed five books of madrigals. He became interested in the experimental musical dramas of Jacopo Peri, who was music director at the court of the Medici family, and in similar works by other early composers. Before long he began to build a brilliant reputation in every type of music to which he turned his attentionlavishly orchestrated operas, ballet music, dialogues, songs and scherzi musicali, intermezzi for plays, outdoor music for tournaments, besides a wealth of church compositions including masses and vespers.

His work marks the transition from Renaissance to Baroque music. During his long life he produced work that can be classified in both categories, and he was one of the most significant revolutionaries that brought about the change in style. Monteverdi wrote the earliest dramatically viable opera, Orfeo, and was fortunate enough to enjoy fame during his lifetime. In 1590 Monteverdi began working at the court in Mantua as a vocalist and viol player, and by 1602 he had become conductor there. Until his fortieth birthday he mainly worked on madrigals, composing nine books of them in all. Book VIII, published in 1638, includes the so-called Madrigali dei guerrieri ed amorosi which many consider to be the perfection of the form. As a whole, the first eight books of madrigals show the enormous development from the Renaissance polyphonic music to the monodic style which is typical of Baroque music. The ninth book of madrigals, published posthumously in 1651, contains lighter pieces, such as canzonettas, probably composed throughout his lifetime and representing both styles. It is arguable that Monteverdi's greatest work remains the Vespro della Beata Vergine 1610 (The Vespers of the Blessed Virgin 1610). This is one of his few sacred works of any scale, but it remains to this day one of the greatest examples of devotional music, matched only by works such as Handel's Messiah and J. S. Bach's St. Matthew Passion. The scope of the work as a whole is breathtaking - each part (there are 25 in total) is fully developed in both a musical and dramatic sense - the instrumental textures are used to precise dramatic and emotional effect, in a way that had not been seen in before.

Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643)
Detailed Information about Introduction (born Cremona, 15 May 1567; died Venice, 29 November 1643). He studied with Ingegneri, maestro di cappella at Cremona Cathedral, and published several books of motets and madrigals before going to Mantua in about 1591 to serve as a string player at the court of Duke Vincenzo Gonzaga. There he came under the influence of Giaches de Wert, whom he failed to succeed as maestro di cappella in 1596. In 1599 he married Claudia de Cattaneis, a court singer, who bore him three children, and two years later he was appointed maestro di cappella on Pallavicino's death. Largely as the result of a prolonged controversy with the theorist G.M. Artusi, Monteverdi became known as a leading exponent of the modem approach to harmony and text expression. In 1607 his first opera, Orfeo , was produced in Mantua, followed in 1608 by Arianna . Disenchanted with Mantua, he then retumed to Cremona, but failed to secure his release from the Gonzaga family until 1612, when Duke Vincenzo died. The dedication to Pope Paul V of a grand collection of church music known as the Vespers (1610) had already indicated an outwardlooking ambition, and in 1613 Monteverdi was appointed maestro di cappella at St. Mark's, Venice.

At the duke's death in 1613, Monteverdi became Maestro di Cappella at St. Mark's Cathedral in Venice. Monteverdi is remembered today primarily for his contributions to opera (including Orfeo and L'incoronazione di Poppea), and to the development of what later came to be known as the baroque style (his fifth book of madrigals being the first to employ basso continuo .

A short bio of Monteverid (15761643) and completely subjective recording recommendations.
Claudio Monteverdi, 1576-1643
Born in Cremona 1567, he studied music in his teens and went to Mantova to become court musician. He was appointed maestro di capella there aged 34 and stayed until the age of 45. From then (1613) until his death in 1643 he was maestro di capella at the famous basilica di San Marco in Venezia. His job there was, of course, to compose and play spiritual music for the masses, but he never stopped composing operas which he had started to do at the court of Mantova. If Lasso was the greatest composer of the Renaissance, then Monteverdi was his worthy successor for the early Baroque age. Although his style is clearly influenced by Renaissance polyphony - after all, he did learn his craft in the era -, it is a style of its own. Some musicologists say that his L'Orfeo (1607) was the first opera ever, but this can be battled about. Whatever the case, he led the genre to a first climax in that he composed the music not according to strict academic rules (which he called prima prattica ), but but in order to emphasise the emotion required by the plot (

Claudio Monteverdi
with Jan Swafford In this edition of Milestones of the Millennium , commentator Jan Swafford explains why Claudio Monteverdi is one of the most important composers in the history of Western classical music. Monteverdi bestrode the musical eras we call Renaissance and Baroque, and was the first composer to develop opera to its full dramatic and musical potential. Monteverdi’s revolutionary innovations have influenced 20th century composers like Igor Stravinsky, while foreshadowing the modern idea of the song. Born in Cremona in 1567, Monteverdi composed a book of madrigals by the time he was 17. At age 24, he became a musician in the court of Mantova, where he eventually became music director. By his mid-40s, he would be the most celebrated composer in Italy. Meanwhile, around the year 1600, a group of Florentine intellectuals introduced their fledgling concept of opera, an imitation of ancient Greek drama. In 1607, Monteverdi took this rudimentary approach and turned it on its head with, arguably, the first true opera, “L’Orfeo.” His revolutionary debut defied all existing musical convention.

Born in Cremona in 1567, Claudio Monteverdi served at the court of the Dukes of Mantua from the early 1590s until 1612, when he moved to Venice as maestro di cappella at the basilica of St. Mark, a position he retained until his death in 1643. His importance as a proponent of the so-called seconda prattica, the new concerted music characteristic of the early Baroque, is unquestioned, as is his pre-eminence in the development of the new form of opera that sprang from the combination of music and rhetoric in the art of Italian monody. Stage Works Secular Vocal Music Monteverdi published a number of collections of songs and madrigals. Of these the Lament of Arianna has been mentioned, while the Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda was also published in a set of Madrigali guerrieri et amorosi (Madrigals of War and of Love), designed for singing without dramatic action. This particularly rich repertoire of vocal music includes the duet, also in the form of a five-part madrigal, Zefiro torna (Zephyr, turn), from the poet Petrarch and Ecco mormorar l'onde (Lo the murmur of the waves), a setting of Tasso. These and other songs and madrigals by Monteverdi were brought to modern attention by the French composer, teacher and musicologist Nadia Boulanger in memorable realisations and recordings in the 1940s.

Italian composer. He studied under Marc'Antonio Ingegneri maestro di cappella of Cremona Cathedral, and published collections of motets, canzonettas, and sacred madrigals while still in his teens. In 1587 his first book of secular madrigals appeared, followed by a second book in 1590. He visited Milan in 1589, and probably performed for the Gonzaga family at Mantua; by 1592 he had obtained an appointment as suonatore di vivuola (viol and/or violin player) to Duke Vincenzo I of Mantua.
