Were it possible I should give this download double the maximum stars, for my delight in these charming and sophisticated Italianate duets (interspersed with a few solo cantate) was doubled by the availability of the background booklet [elsewhere in other reviews I have several times complained of my frustration at the habitual absence of background material available for PDF download from Amazon - especially for rare operas for example - which left purchasers with so many unanswered questions). Here we have an admirable introduction by no less a doyen of the music of the period than William Christie of Les Arts Florissants fame, followed by the libretti in both original and in translations. Let us hope that this is the dawn of a new era!
What of the music? Duets for the brilliance of the countertenor voice. A mix of composers, familiar (Bononcini, Marcello, Porpora, Alessandro Scarlatti) and less familiar (Mancini, Conti)- all from the late XVIth-early XVIIth centuries, drawing upon the late Italian madrigal and early Italian opera traditions of melody and expressiveness.
Now to the performances: each singer is an enhancing foil to the other, each voice has its distinctive quality that blends while maintaining its individuality. These are masterly sylists in this stylised music. Jaroussky is becoming a most fashionable soloist and much in demand for music of this period, with very good reason as this recording amply demonstrates; Cenci may as yet be less well-known but he yields nothing to his partner in timbre, power or expertise.
All I can say is buy it, buy it, buy it!
