CLASSICAL OPUS no.53

Claudio Monteverdi: “Lettera amorosa”

クラウディオ・モンテヴェルディ:「ラブレター」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 4 minutes

We owe to him the introduction to contrasts in music – texture, timbre and (later) tempo – all with a dose of healthy unpredictability.  While essentially maintaining the structure of a song, the composer sought a wider range of emotional expression, mining the potential of color in vocal rendition.  After all, doesn’t human voice possess more intrinsic emotional quality than any man-made instrument?  Some results may have been inconclusive, others sound ultramodern even today.  Regardless of the final verdict, Monteverdi left behind many resplendent, hallucinatory canticles.

A REFLECTION

I choose to love you in silence

For in silence I find no rejection

I choose to love you in loneliness

For in loneliness

No one owns you but me
