AAM - In stil moderno: Richard Egarr directs Castello, Strozzi & Claudio Monteverdi
West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge
Wednesday 14 April 2021 19:30
Academy of Ancient Music
Richard Egarr director & harpsichord
Had Dario Castello left us a large-scale composition (an Orfeo or a Vespers) his genius would likely be recognised today alongside that of his colleague Claudio Monteverdi. Pity though it might be only to have been left his two books of instrumental music, the 30 works contained therein are nothing short of a revolution. Daring, innovative and virtuosic, Castello’s sonatas are an artistic triumph surpassed perhaps only by their commercial success in early 17th century Venice. AAM Music Director Richard Egarr, a long-time advocate of Castello’s, leads an intrepid exploration of the composer’s unbounded imagination, offset by works by his contemporaries.
