    Default Among Carlo Gesualdo madrigal's do you have a favorite one?

    I think it's his third and fourth madrigal is so perfect, like i said to a friend this is not necesarly the most bold but well balance, stronger than his 2 first book of madrigals, less eccentric than his fifth and sixth madrigal all does i like em , 3 remain very strong and fourth i second.

    Anyone familiar has i am whit his madrigals i want to comment ,what his personnal choice?
    Let says if you had to choose one or two madrigal out of 6 book of madrigals what would it be?

    The Sixth book is genius! I'm amazed at how well Gesualdo handled so much uncharted water in harmony and counterpoint. My favorite is probably "Moro, lasso:"
