La Venexiana are the Italian Madrigal Group. Founded by soprano Rossana Bertini and counter-tenor Claudio Cavina, they are some of the most experienced performers in the early music field. They open the second half of our Winter Festival with a beautiful programme of highlights from Monteverdi’s Books Five to Nine of Madrigals on Wednesday 5 January 2011.
Garnering praise from around the world, the group have won numerous prizes including a Gramophone award, the Diapason d’Or, the Prix Amadeus 2000 and the Cannes Classical Award.Their aim is to sing music of the past in a way affected by culture and emotions of the present, promising a futuristic and romantic performance of Monteverdi’s sublime madrigals.
