Combining a close study of Monteverdi's secular works with recent research on late Renaissance history, Gary Tomlinson places the composer's creative career in its broad cultural context and illuminates the state of Italian music, poetry, and ideology in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Gary Tomlinson is Professor of Music at the University of Pennsylvania and a 1988 MacArthur Fellow.
