I Sonetti Lussuriosi is a collection of pieces by world-renowned composer Michael Nyman . This work is a setting of 8 pieces of erotic poetry by Italian poet Pietro Aretino. This is the Vocal Score which can be used for either the Piano Quintet or Orchestra version. I Sonetti Lussuriosi  was inspired by Renaissance engravings of couples engaged in sexual intercourse, which caused outrage among authorities at the time. At the world premiere of Nyman 's work, Marie Angel voiced both the male and female characters, with the Orchestra di Santa Cecilia, conducted by Michael Nyman  himself.
