Notes & Reviews:

American-born soprano Jill Feldman has been at the forefront of period performance for many years. Originally released in 1991, 'Udite Amanti' has been re-issued as part of Linn's ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label's award-winning catalogue. Feldman's debut solo recording for Linn is a vocal masterclass; her highly expressive style combines vocal agility with close attention to the dramatic content, beauty and meaning of the text. Feldman has selected some of the greatest 17th century Italian music ever written, from Monteverdi's declamatory madrigal Lettera Amorosa to Caccini's Quest Lagrim'amare with its formal perfection and extremely ornamental refinements and d'India's Mentre Che'l Cor which laments the unfulfilled vows of love of youth. Critics are constantly lavishing praise on her and many reviews compliment Feldman's 'special combination of absolute control and thinking musical personality', as well as her ability to communicate music of this period 'with astonishing restraint and perfect diction'. This is a varied and engaging chamber programme with Nigel North on lute and theorbo providing a thoughtful accompaniment. Jill Feldman is a leading artist in the field of medieval, baroque and classical performance. With Les Arts Florissants Jill Feldman created the title-role of Charpentier's Médée; the recording won a Gramophone Award, the Grand Prix Charles Cros and the Grand Prix du Disque de Montreux. Jill Feldman has performed and recorded with many of the early music movement's leading figures: Jordi Savall, Andrew Parrott, René Jacobs, William Christie and Nicholas McGegan. Renowned as one of the world's most respected lutenists Nigel North has developed a unique musical life embracing work as a teacher, accompanist, soloist, director and writer.
