Gesualdo - Madrigals in 5-parts
Love, desire and death – these are the three themes that pervade the musical poetry of Don Carlo Gesualdo, Prince of Venosa, which has become a byword for tortured emotion. These madrigals are the clearest depiction in his output of the torments of the soul, offering a faithful musical image of the ‘sweet poison’ which eats into lovers’ hearts . . .
“Gesualdo's unnerving music produces some tuning problems and Christie's insertion of instruments is odd. But his telling interpretations make this a welcome, compelling reissue.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2009 ****
“…Les Arts Florissants recorded this more than 20 years ago and… its hardly aged at all. This includes excerpts from Books 3 and 6, interspersed with strikingly detailed performances on the harp from Andrew Lawrence-King. In their rhythmic freedom they seem to prefigure what Italian ensembles would achieve a few years later, but the cast is a very fine one, and the choice of pieces superb.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2009

Este Libro es de Don Luis Rossi
Ensemble Poieses, Marion Fourquier
Este Libro es de Don Luis Rossi, kept in the British Library in London, is a faithful representative of the musical tastes of the early baroque. It is a hand-written manuscript in which the young Luigi Rossi, during the time of his service to the Court of Naples, noted highly significant pieces by composers who had been important to him during his training, and had fed his imagination.
