Claudio Monteverdi

Claudio Monteverdi, a composer of the early baroque era, is probably most famous for the first real opera, "L'Orfeo" (1607), his last opera "L'incoronazione di Poppea" (1642) and his incredible vespers "Vespro Della Beata Vergine" (1610), although also one of the greatest madrigalists at the end of the rennesaince and the beginning of the new baroque. Noted for his masterpieces "Selva Morale e spirituale" (1640) and the undying lament "Lamento d'Arianna" (1607).

These pages will soon be up and running with information on Claudio Monteverdi, his life, contemporaries and general background.
