Explores the fascinating life of the Renaissance composer Carlo Gesualdo (1566-1613), who continues to captivate composers, artists, and audiences today. Challenges our preconceptions of what has become a nearly mythic persona, weaving together the cumulative experience of some of the most vibrant artists of the past century from Stravinsky and Schoenberg to Abbado and Herzog.
