Über La Compagnia del Madrigale
Since its founding in 2008, the Italian ensemble La Compagnia del Madrigale has earned a place among the leading performers of madrigals. A critic for Gramophone Magazine was unsparing with praise: “They are a superb ensemble with the wonderful Rossana Bertini as first soprano and with the tenor Giussepe Maletto. Their sound is beautifully focused, with just enough expression to make the best of the music without exaggerating anything.” Their repertoire includes works by important madrigal composers, with Claudio Monteverde, Carlo Gesualdo, and John Taverner at the forefront. As part of its concert activities, the ensemble makes regular appearances at leading early music festivals (MiTo, Unione Musicale Torino) and at important concert halls – this season they will be performing at London’s famed Wigmore Hall. Their recordings have repeatedly won the prestigious Diapason d’Or, and in 2014, an album also earned the title of Gramophone Magazine’s Album of the Year.
