Monteverdi is recognized as the supreme master of 17th-century opera, but two other Italian composers also made tremendous contributions to the genre. The lyricism, passion, and virtuosity of their beautiful arias and duets are showcased here. In Venice, singer-composer Cesti’s sweet vocal lines, seductive melodies, and sensitive text-setting revealed his intimate knowledge of the voice, while Monteverdi student Cavalli’s superb operas dominated the city’s public stages in the latter part of the century.
