The letters of Claudio Monteverdi by Claudio Monteverdi ( Book )
16 editions published between 1980 and 1995 in English and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This revised English edition of Monteverdi's correspondence contains all his known letters and places them within the context of his life and works. Dating from the last forty-two years of his career, the 127 letters paint a vivid picture of artistic life in Mantua, Venice, and Parma at one of the most crucial periods in music history. The time-span, in this new edition, also covers the composer's early years in Cremona and Mantua, and coincides with the flowering of Italian opera and instrumental music. Monteverdi has much to say about the aesthetics of Stage production and meticulously describes his patrons, librettists, instrumentalists, and singers. He also writes about the harsh realities of a life in which the daily round might include a robbery at gunpoint or threats from the Inquisitor

Monteverdi in Venice by Denis Stevens ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Monteverdi in Venice describes in detail the last thirty years of the composer's life. Now recognized as one of the greatest geniuses of baroque music, he deserves to be reassessed in a way that reflects his times and the effect they had on his day-to-day existence. The late operas, subject of another book, give way here to an account of his activities at St. Mark's as music director. This was the appointment that paid him so generously from 1613, the year of his arrival, until his death in 1643." "Monteverdi in Venice also contains a discussion of performance practice, shedding light on the odd distortions of the composer's musical habits produced by today's fads and fashions. His vocal works, meant to be performed one or two voices to a part, are consistently given by massed choirs. His music is willfully transposed, although there is not a shred of evidence to prove that they were ever interfered with. Most of the instruments used in modern renderings are hopelessly wrong from a tonal point of view."--BOOK JACKET
