Pur Ti Miro for four cellos by Claudio Monteverdi, arranged by James Barralet
published by Opus Cello
Opus Cello specializes in high-quality cello arrangements, often for 2 or more cellos, from the classical repertory and beyond. Its music has been performed by the likes of Yo-Yo Ma, Gautier Capucon, Kian Soltani, Sol Gabetta, Frans Helmerson, and more, as well as the Boston Cello Quartet and cello sections of major orchestras from around the world. First spearheaded by Blaise Dejardin, principal cellist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, it has grown to feature arrangements by Aurelien Sabouret, Sebastien Walnier, Renaud Guieu, and James Barralet. These publications help to greatly expand the repertoire for avid cellio ensembles and chamber groups.
This arrangement from James Barralet sets ''Pur Ti Miro'', the tender final love duet from Renaissance composer Claudio Monteverdi's (1567-1643) last opera ''L'incoronazione di Poppea'' (The Coronation of Poppea). Includes 4 performance parts and score
