Monteverdi Lamento d' Arianna / Pianto della Madonna for Solo Voice and Basso continuo

Claudio Monteverdi’s 1608 opera “Arianna” is best-known for the title character’s lament sung by Isabella Andreini.  Contemporary voices praised the depth of expression and the power of affect in this continuo-accompanied piece for solo voice.  The interest in this operatic scene now known as the “Lamento d’Arianna” led to many transcriptions and finally also printed versions and contrafacts being circulated, such as the Marian lament “Pianto della Madonna” from 1640/41, which is available in this edition.

- Two versions: The opera version of the lament and the contrafact “Pianto della Madonna”

- Two inserted scores with the musical text only, one for the harmony instrument, the other for the low string instrument

- Libretto edition by Sara Elisa Stangalino with translations (Eng/Ger)
