Notes & Reviews:

Composer, singer and poet, Sigismondo d'India was a true child of dawning century. Like his great contemporary Monteverdi, he succeeded in integrating polyphony into the new monodic style. But it is above all in his Musiche da cantar solo that he showed his measure as an innovator. This budget priced reissue featuring soprano Maria Cristina Kiehr samples d'India's madrigals for solo voice.

George Pratt, BBC Music Magazine
Maria Cristina Kiehr is clearly inspired by the musical invention here. Her voice is deceptive, at once cuttingly clean, yet subtly responsive to every emotional nuance.

Elizabeth Roche, Daily Telegraph
All the pieces in this first-class selection from his five books of solo songs are of the highest quality......Maria Cristina Kiehr rises superbly to all its technical and expressive challenges, from bitter vituperation and wild despair to the chill of approaching death.

Andrew Clements, The Guardian
Interspersed with instrumental pieces by D'India's contemporaries, Trabaci, Mayone and De Macque, this selection, made by the soprano Maria Cristina Kiehr, shows the musical variety and expressive range of the composer's work. Whether in strophic arias, simple canzonettas or elaborate madrigals, Kiehr's singing is effortlessly lush and nicely emotionally understated.

Anthony Holden, The Observer
With the Concerto Soave under Jean-Marc Aymes, the Argentinian-born soprano Maria Cristina Kiehr proves herself a true mistress of the genre.
