5.0 out of 5 stars Los Pajaros Perdidos: from chaconne to tango in the sun, 11 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Los Pajaros Perdidos (Audio CD)
How to describe this CD? "Fusion" I think is the term in current use. It has elements of European Baroque, South American Baroque and South American contemporary and folk music. There are also echoes of African rhythms.

It is performed by L'Arpeggiata a group of musicians whose recordings of Monteverdi, Kapsberger and Lundi are exquisite but, for want of a better word, conventional, interpretations of European Baroque music.

Their disc, Monteverdi, Teatro d'Amore hinted at things to come.

I am too ignorant to go into the technical details of the instruments used. They sound like guitars, lutes, harps and violins and they take you from the stately measures of the seventeenth century to tangos in smoke filled bars. It seems mean to single out one performer when all are so good, but the quality of Philippe Jaroussky's counter-tenor voice is beyond compare.

I know it is a cliché, but on a cold winter's day in rural England, this music is lifting my spirits and warming my soul. Magic!
