schema:reviewBody""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."
