Notes & Reviews:

On this CD Fabio Antonio Falcone presents recordings of possibly the two oldest examples of printed keyboard music. He uses three instruments, each of distinctive character: an Italian harpsichord after Alessandro Trasuntino (Venezia 1531) and a polygonal virginal after Domenico da Pesaro (ca.1550), both built by Roberto Livi. For Cavazzoni, he plays the organ of the Church of San Giuseppe, Montevecchio di Pergola, an instrument by a builder now unknown, which dates back to the end of the 17th century. What survives of Cavazzoni is a small, precious collection mixing sacred fantasias under the title of ricercari, without the implication of a single underlying melody which that term now encloses, but more a collection of contrapuntal flourishes. There are two - the earliest known such composed for keyboards rather than voices - and each is followed by a motet (Salve Virgo, Stella Maris) and four canzone that are transcriptions of original chansons. For these songs no vocal models have been located. Cavazzoni may well have arranged his own vocal compositions for organ. On an appropriate instrument in good hands, the impression left by Cavazzoni tends towards a free-wheeling grandeur, whereas the surviving song transcriptions by the splendidly and aptly named Andrea Antico are of more tender intimacy, through perhaps less bold harmonic explorations but also closer observation of a singing line, whatever the chosen instrument. Fabio Antonio Falcone is a student of the harpsichord wizard Bob van Asperen, among others: this is his second recording for Brilliant Classics after a no less adventurous survey of the works of Giovanni de Macque (BC94998).

Reviews

An exceptionally varied program
Fabio Antonio Falcone turns in a compelling program of Italian renaissance keyboard music. It traverses the complete keyboard output of two composers; Andrea Antico and Marco Antonio Cavazzoni.

Both composers have their merits. Antico was active primarily as a publisher and arranger. His 1517 collection Frorttole features keyboard arrangements of the then-new vocal form of the same name. Cavazzoni was a harpsichordist as well as a composer. His works, to my ears, more fully explore the contrapuntal possibilities inherent in keyboard instruments than Antico.

Falcone carefully sequences the works to provide contrast and maintain listener interest. He also varies the instruments he performs on, which also helps vary the sound of the recording.

The church organ Falcone plays was originally built in mid-1600s, and still retains (at least in Falcone's voicings), the small, intimate sound of a renaissance period organ. He also plays a harpsichord based on an 1531 prototype, and a polygonal virginal from around the same period. The difference between the full, strong sound of the harpsichord and the delicate tinkle of the virginal is easy to hear.

This one's a given for anyone interested in renaissance instrumental music. But I think it may also appeal to those who are looking for something a little outside standard classical repertoire.
