Lively villanellas by Kapsberger and sweet arias by Sigismondo d’India and Girolamo Frescobaldi contrast the fiery virtuosity of Claudio Monteverdi, Giovanni Felice Sances and Barbara Strozzi in this light, summer program celebrating nature and secular life. It’s vocal virtuosity of the 17th century at its best – times two.
