Anna Caterina Antonacci
Combattimenti & Lamenti
For her new recital at La Monnaie, Anna Caterina Antonacci is performing a programme of baroque music chosen to suit and show off her tragic heroine temperament and her expressive virtuosity. She has gone back to the origins of opera – beginning with the first master of the form, Monteverdi – to exhibit her great skill at recitar cantando and the lamento con affetti in songs which reveal the internal battles of the heart and soul.
The Accademia degli Astrusi – conducted by Federico Ferri – will accompany these solo voice masterpieces and give a fiery reply with some original instrumental pieces.
