Features
Toccata (from the Opera L'Orfeo) by : Claudio Monteverdi : Jacob de Haan


Claudio Monteverdi composed this toccata as an instrumental introduction for the opera L'Orfeo (1607). According to the composer; this introduction should be played three times before the rising of the curtain; making it the first overture in the history of opera. The story of Orfeo; who enchanted nature with his music; is tragic; as he loses his beloved Eurydice and decides to retrieve her from the underworld. On their return journey one glance back at her is fatal: he loses her for the second time. This arrangement for wind band makes an ideal opening piece. The toccata is played three times; just like the original – the first time by a quintet (two trumpets and three trombones).
