Notes & Reviews:
This new program from Private Musicke, with the young Spanish soprano Raquel Andueza, is dedicated to the light Italian delights of the early Baroque period. Everything centers on love in The labyrinth of hope, sorrow, optimism, disappointment and joy. This music is a small selection of the utterly incalculable amount of printed music that appeared between 1610 and 1640. At the sonic centre is the "chitarra espanola" which was explicitly conceived as the accompanying instrument for all the pieces; during these years, it began its soaring flight which has continued up to the present day.
