    Developing Rhetorical Devices: The Poetic Influence of Torquato Tasso on Monteverdi’s Madrigals.

    A presentation by Christian Giddings, Music Director at Kents Hill School and UMF music instructor. Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) is considered by many to be among the most important musicians of the late sixteenth century. He wrote in every genre of the time, and his madrigals may be considered a bridge from the Late-Renaissance style into the Baroque. Torquato Tasso (1544-1595) is one of the most important poets of the second half of the sixteenth century. Using rhetorical analysis, Giddings will investigate the poetic influence of Tasso on Monteverdi’s madrigals.
