As we turn the corner into the last month of the year, Vlad has a special programme in store for the anniversary of Claudio Monteverdi’s death on November 29th, featuring an interview with NUI Maynooth professor Dr Antonio Cascelli, kicking off a month of Italian and international early music in the month leading up to Christmas. Music by the Cremonese master, who first made Mantua, and then Venice, his home is part of the programme today, in all of its sacred and secular, vocal and instrumental glory!
