Notes & Reviews:
A fascinating compilation detailing the highly expressive music of Prince, composer and murderer Carlo Gesualdo - one of history's most colorful figures. Gesualdo's first six books of madrigals remain his best-known music. Gesualdo's daring and forward-looking language was born out of his belief that music must be subservient to textual meaning, and his status as a nobleman allowed him to pursue this position unhindered. Featuring Quintetto Vocale Italiano's pioneering performance of the works, this release movingly traces the development of a composer whose intensely expressive music was centuries ahead of its time.
