Gesualdo’s Second Book of Madrigals, performed on this recording by male voices only, is an even more radical study of the themes explored in Volume 1 (8570548), a continuation as it were of the same work.

Like Book 1, it was published in 1594 in Ferrara during the preparations for Gesualdo’s second wedding, and demonstrates his ability to treat the poetic word as a source of musical ideas.

The last two tracks present Gesualdo’s only two instrumental compositions.

Carlo Gesualdo: Caro amoroso neo

Caro amoroso neo

Ma se tale ha costei

Carlo Gesualdo: Hai rotto e sciolto e spento

Hai rotto e sciolto e spento

Carlo Gesualdo: Se per lieve ferita

Se per lieve ferita

Che sentir deve il petto

Carlo Gesualdo: In piu leggiadro velo

In piu leggiadro velo

Carlo Gesualdo: Se cosi dolce e il duolo

Se cosi dolce e il duolo

Ma se avverra ch'io moia

Carlo Gesualdo: Se taccio, il duol s'avanza

Se taccio, il duol s'avanza

Carlo Gesualdo: O com'e gran martire

O com'e gran martire

O mio soave ardore

Carlo Gesualdo: Sento che nel partire

Sento che nel partire

Carlo Gesualdo: Non e questa la mano

Non e questa la mano

Ne tien face o saetta

Carlo Gesualdo: Candida man qual neve

Candida man qual neve

Carlo Gesualdo: Dalle odorate spoglie

Dalle odorate spoglie

E quell'arpa felice

Carlo Gesualdo: Non mai non cangero

Non mai non cangero

Carlo Gesualdo: All'apparir di quelle luci ardenti

All'apparir di quelle luci ardenti

Carlo Gesualdo: Non mi toglia il ben mio

Non mi toglia il ben mio

Gramophone Magazine

February 2011

“I've found myself warming to the overall approach, which is relaxed and unhurried. This, combined with the ensemble's sound, securely underpinned by Walter Testolin's bass, allows points of detail to tell (for example, final or sectional cadences) that might otherwise be skated over.”

The Guardian

20th January 2011

****

“for the most part the 20 settings in book two...mostly inhabit the musical world of Gesualdo's older contemporaries such as De Rore and De Wert. But even if they broke no new ground, these are still pieces of great beauty and lyrical force, as the performances by the six male voices of Delitiae Musicae show.”
