Nathalie Stutzmann’s classic recording of Handel arias with the Hanover Band was re-released a few years ago, which meant many more people could enjoy her poetic singing. Her deep, rich contralto voice is surprisingly agile, easily dispatching Handel’s more difficult arias and creating some very exciting moments.

Ghirardello da Firenze: Madrigali, Cacce, Ballate

Ghirardello da Firenze (also known as Giovanni da Cascia) was a composer of the Italian trecento and a contemporary of Francesco Landini; he was also one of the earliest members of the so-called “Florentine Group” that dominated musical currents in the middle of the 14th century. Judging from the proliferation of his works in various manuscripts, Ghirardello’s music was widely known and often played; he was also a pioneer in the production of madrigals. Despite his contemporary renown and excellent survival rate, the 14th century was a long, long time ago and even Landini doesn’t have very many collections devoted solely to his work. On Nuova Era’s Ghirardello da Firenze: Madrigali Cacce, Ballate Dal Codice Squarcialupi, period ensemble group Ensemble Modo Antiquo, led by Federico Maria Sardelli, plunge into the famed Squarcialupi Codex in order to extract a selection of 16 pieces by Ghirardello.

Nuria Rial & La Floridiana present world premiere recordings by Marianna Martines, a famous female composer in the time of Mozart and Haydn.

Marianna Martines was one of the most accomplished and highly honoured female musicians of the eighteenth century. She studied with the young Joseph Haydn and was known in Vienna to be a gifted singer and keyboard player, who performed duets with Mozart himself. Despite the fact that many of her compositions appeared in print during her own lifetime many of her works are still missing, among them a total of probably 28 sonatas and eight concertos for harpsichord. The album includes four world premiere recordings, and is released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Marianna Martines who died on March 11th 1812. The 28 page booklet is complete with elaborate liner notes and full libretti in German, English and French.

contents:

 Ouverture in C for wind instruments, strings and bc
Cantata Il primo amore for soprano, wind instruments, strings and bc
Concerto in E major for harpsichord solo, wind instruments and strings

Telemann – Tutti Flauti!

This CD is extraordinary in many ways, starting with the absolutely perfect choice of works. Granted, Telemann concertos are more or less foolproof, and it takes a pretty bad musician to ruin any piece by this composer. But even so, among all the delicious Telemann concertos available, these are some of the most scrumptious. Furthermore, they are served to the listener on a silver plate, with the best of sauces, and cooked by the best chefs.(…)
I will be quite direct: simply put, this is one of the best flute CDs that I have heard in quite a while, and it belongs in every library and collection. FANFARE: Laura Rónai

Beautiful and impressive playing like this sets the standards to which others must aspire! Early Music Review

Alfred Deller – Complete Vanguard Recordings


35 CD – MP3 192 Kbps – 16 RAR 3.11Gb
“Deller, the first modern virtuoso countertenor, is most often cited for his unmatched expressiveness, his ability to hold an audience rapt with his long-breathed phrases and uncanny, subtle shadings of tone and dynamics. And if you’re wondering what this is about, just listen to his rendition of Dowland’s “If my complaints”, a virtual clinic in vocal poetry. Listen carefully, or you’ll miss the most finely-wrought, heartfelt utterances ever captured on a recording. The world has not seen the equal of Alfred Deller; even though we have countertenors today with purer, more even and luxurious tone, none of these singers surpasses Deller in sheer, fundamental artistry or an understanding, internalized feeling for the art of song itself.”
