Notes & Reviews:

Once again putting a strong emphasis on improvisation, Lislevand and his colleagues disclose the astounding modernity and emotional wealth in the music of composers such as Giovanni Antonio Terzi or Joan Ambrosio Dalza. Most of the music stems from the Veneto region of Italy where, during that period, strong influences of oriental and eastern music could be felt. Lislevand's group translates this with a lush scoring for deep instruments, both stringed and plucked. The album title 'Diminuito' refers to the practice of virtuosic ornamentation of vocal lines, the "diminution" of larger rhythmic and harmonic units in most agile runs, scales and arpeggi. The album was recorded at the monastery of St. Gerold with a line-up including two of Trio Mediaeval's delightful sopranos, Anna Maria Friman and Linn Andrea Fuglesth.

BBC Music Magazine
Lislevand and his colleagues manage to create music that sings and is full of grace, feeling and lyricism...these fine performances - fresh, animated, elegant and virtuosic without being flashy - are utterly persuasive.

Gramophone Magazine
everything's done with such evident awareness of the style of the period, not to mention panache, that it's nearly always possible to suspend disbelief...One has the impression of musicians...who may actually have experienced jazz from the inside, rather than slapping it on modishly...And the playing's simply superb.
