Il ballo delle Ingrate
Lamento d'Arianna
Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda

Soprano Ginette Puylaert: 'Puylaert’s style was more suited to Monteverdi’s music, and it allowed her greater flexibility for the complexity of rhythms and text delivery'.

Les Talens Lyriques: 'The strings were particularly energetic and perky in the dance rhythms of Il ballo delle ingrate, and they relished the battle sounds of striking swords and horses’ hooves in Combattimento'.

Christophe Rousset: 'Rousset directed with clarity and precision from the keyboards'.

'A performance with many strengths, not least from Rousset and the players of Les Talens Lyriques, and it is great to see these works performed here in Brighton'.
