In her second CD for Pentatone, German singer Anna Lucia Richter bids farewell to soprano roles (having made the decision to continue her career as a mezzo-soprano) with this album devoted to Monteverdi: Il delirio della passione. This album is full of Monteverdi trea­sures, ranging from heart-wrenching opera scenes, including all that’s extant from L’Arianna, and religious music to bucolic songs. Richter works together with Ensemble Claudiana and Luca Pianca, one of the most eminent Monteverdi interpreters of our age.
