Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Independent
This collection focuses largely on works by lesser-known composers such as Zanetti, Merula and Salvatore, but includes two standout works in the "Fantaisie" attributed to Luigi Rossi, and Frescobaldi's "Canzoni da Sonare", the composer's first significant break with strict counterpoint.

The Independent
The playing is never less than polished, though the bowing of the faster movements is routinely pithy. Concerto Italiano's personality is better expressed in the piercing suspensions of the slower pieces, such as the anonymous Fantasia on the tears of Orpheus.

Gramophone Magazine
Concerto Italiano's lean ensemble of a string quartet, harpsichord and archlute plays the descending chromatic figures in a lamentful Fantasie from Rossi's Orfeo with finesse and sensitivity...Alessandrini's programme has a seamless artistic flow that gently pulls the listener along an illuminating narrative...[He] ensures that later music by Legrenzi and Torelli possess astute dance rhythms and shapely harmonic details.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The performance is cheerful and energetic, precise and nuanced. Excellent sound and an excellently conceived program.
