    Monteverdi's l'Orfeo

    Starting this week Bernard Clarke will explore recordings by the Belgian conductor René Jacobs, renowned for his performances of Baroque and early Classical opera.

    Tonight we’ll hear his superlative recording of L’Orfeo, Monteverdi’s telling of the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. First performed in 1607, Bernard examines the recent superlative recording by Jacobs with the Concerto Vocale, and Laurence Dale singing the title role.
