Product Description

Product Description

Between 2000 and 2005, LArpeggiata and Christina Pluhar opened up new ways in the rediscovery and interpretation of the Baroque repertoires. The five recordings made for Alpha are some of the greatest disc successes in these repertoires and still stand as references, thanks to the exceptional quality of their artistic and sound achievement.
These five recordings are henceforth offered at a reduced price.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Major Arpeggio 12 Feb 2014
By JB TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This five CD box set catalogues L'Arpeggiata's pre-Virgin/Erato years, and comprises:

Kapsberger: La Villanella
Landi: Homo fugit velut umbra
Cavalieri: Rappresentatione Di Anima Et Di Corpo
All'Improvviso
La Tarantella

At the time of writing, each individual disc still retails at full price and so the box represents something of a bargain. The discography here is varied, ranging from early opera to the kind of folk/jazz/early music fusion which L'Arpeggiata have helped define and develop.

If you've caught snippets of the ensemble's output on the radio then you'll be familiar with the infectiously foot-tapping effect of some of the music. Beyond that though, the material is historically informed without being in any way stylistically confined.

An at times fascinating and immensely rewarding document of the group's early years.

Nothing better to lift one out of letargy or sadness. The sound is sublime and the enthusiasm of the players always communicative. It is dangerous music - one does not want anything less having tasted this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, great collection 19 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard some of L'arpeggiata's music on Radio 3 and liked it enormously. They bring such passion and freshness to baroque music, as well as their musicianship. This collection of 6 of their albums represents great value for money - the only slight downside is lack of notes (eg words to the songs).

5.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic 16 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought after hearing one track on Saturday morning radio. I've downloaded it onto my computer so I can listen to it lots! I've also lent all 6 cd's to a friend. A lovely collection of varied classical, ensemble, instrumental and pieces for voice. Brilliant.
