Punctuated by the tambourines which now appear to be inevitable on all recordings of Baroque music, this “Delirio della passione” (Delirium of passion) flies the colours of eroticism, both figuratively, and literally, on the image on the cover. This recital by soprano Anna Lucia Richter, at ease with Mahler as with seventeenth-century Italian opera, is devoted to a good dozen secular pieces by Monteverdi from his operas and cycles of love madrigals. Conducting the Claudiana Ensemble while playing his instruments (archluth, theorbo, chitarrone), Luca Pianca makes this music twirl, and gives it the character of a frantic dance. A whole theatre of amorous passions is represented here. It is an expression of a burning sensuality in search of multicultural connections. After all, the Venice of these days looked to the East. – François Hudry
