They were two giants of Italian music: One Catholic and hugely famous, one Jewish and utterly forgotten. Claudio Monteverdi “invented” opera; Salomone Rossi—Monteverdi’s contemporary in age, education, and stature—revolutionized Jewish concert music with compositions for Hebrew prayers, yet today, few know his name. Enter Profeti della Quinta, a young, male vocal quintet from Galilee, on a mission to change that. Hear the works of these two great Italian composers side by side.
