Le Poème Harmonique

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Acclaimed French early-music ensemble Le Po√®me Harmonique returns following two sell-out Opening Night concerts last season. Centered around Monteverdi‚Äôs revolutionary Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda, considered one of the finest madrigals of war, this season‚Äôs program contrasts Monteverdi‚Äôs dramatic cantata with a light-hearted piece by Marazzoli that parodies the same love-lorn tale. Showcasing works in stile rappresentativo‚ÄĒa style of singing developed in 16th century Italian opera that is more emotive than speech but less melodic than song‚ÄĒLe Po√®me Harmonique celebrates music as a means of connection and poetic communication.
