Art & Music: Caravaggio - Music of His Time
Emilio de' Cavalieri
Read by Scholars Baroque Ensemble

Baroque painting begins with Caravaggio (1571-1610), who in a short and violent life created a new style of naturalism. His scenes of sacred history are like brief flashes of lightning, capturing all the drama and horror of a single moment. On this CD, the world of Caravaggio is given a musical perspective with a carefully chosen selection of pieces by the finest composers of his time. This inspiring and beautiful collection of pieces by Palestrina, Gabrieli, Monteverdi, Cavalieri, and Banchieri reflects the musical environment during Caravaggio's lifetime. To discover real connections between this innovative artist and such prominent musical figures of the day sets his work in a wider context - a painting like The Musicians, at least, may be seen with new meaning.
