This famous piece involves a trio of male singers who introduce and comment upon a young lady who is pained by the contents of a love letter.
It is the perfect illustration of Monteverdi's power as a theatrical composer, and is given a suitably free performance by soprano Claire Lefilliatre and her colleagues of Le Poème Harmonique.
