Henri IV of France married Maria de’ Medici in 1600. A new art-form - opera - played an important role in the wedding celebrations in Florence, with Jacopo Peri’s L’Euridice being performed on 6 October at the Palazzo Pitti. Giulio Caccini, however, was clearly in some opposition to his illustrious colleague and beat him to publication; his own version of the same Rinuccini libretto appeared in print in December of the same year. Caccini’s lyricism, emotion and skilled vocal writing show clearly that his L’Euridice is the true forerunner of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo. Ricercar now proudly presents this world premiere recording of Caccini’s masterpiece.
