Product description

Product Description

Fresh from winning the Instrumental category in the BBC Music Magazine Awards 2014 for Guardian Angel (CCSSA35513) Rachel Podger is back with this beautiful collection of masterpieces of the early Italian Baroque.
By the mid-seventeenth century, musical composition had reached a point where invention had converged with technical mastery. Composers embraced a bass line lively with linearity, often entering into dialogue with the upper voices. Exploratory harmonic schemes were encompassed within larger unified tonalities. Through rhetorical structures, such as motive, imitation and sequence, composers instilled logic into their musical arguments.
These characteristics, though rooted in vocal practice, were being cultivated for the first time in musical history for instrumentalists. In other words, the Baroque was born.
The featured composers showcase sublime examples of the early Italian Baroque. Some composers dominate the repertory; others have left behind only a handful of works. Here, they come together to convey the diverse musical landscape at such an excitingly rich and creative era.

Review

In the very early 17th century, extraordinary things were happening to music.Tectonic plates were on the move and established hierarchies were shifting away from vocal music towards instrumental music: away from the polyphonic complexities of a cappella ensemble or choral music towards the utterly different hierarchy of a top line and a bass line, both instrumental, with, crudely, a filling in the middle. It was a revolution: music was moving into the Baroque era. This beautifully assembled set of Baroque pearls - divinely played by Rachel Podger, the doyenne of Baroque violinists, along with her collaborators Marcin Swiatkiewicz on harpsichord and organ, and Daniele Caminiti on theorbo - catches that moment of change in wonderfully light, expressive, mercurial performances of music by composers such as Frescobaldi and Gabrieli, along with names unknown, including Isabella Leonarda, a nun who lived in a convent, churning out over 200 compositions. It's fascinating, immediately appealing stuff, terrific variety within the pieces and, audibly, all the seed elements of the Baroque Suite to come. --The Herald
