MONTEVERDI'S LAST OPERAS: A Venetian Trilogy

Berkeley: University of California Press, 2007. First Edition. Hardcover. "Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) was the first important composer of opera. This innovative study by one of the foremost experts on Monteverdi and seventeenth-century opera examines the composer's celebrated final works - Il ritorno d'Ulisse (1640) and L'incoronazione di Poppea (1642) - from a new perspective. Ellen Rosand considers these works as not merely a pair but constituents of a trio, a Venetian trilogy that, Rosand argues, properly includes a third opera, Le nozze d'Enea (1641)." Numerous facsimiles, figures, tables, and musical examples. Octavo. Original black cloth binding, with gilt titles. A near fine copy in a lightly rubbed dust jacket. Near fine / Near fine.
