5.0 out of 5 stars happy easter with L'Arpeggiata, 12 April 2010
This review is from: Via Crucis (Audio CD)
My first contact with L'Arpeggiata was with their 'Tarantella' CD. Others followed until I bought the Monteverdi CD, which although well produced, wasn't exactly to my taste. However, this man Jaroussky just gets better and better. I have a couple of clips of him singing Giulio Cesare with Cecilia Bartoli, and I think he was chosen to sing with her because he is now world class. This Cd is about Easter and was released just in time for me to begin listening to it on Good Friday this year. This is a wonderful CD and I listened to it throughout, something I didn't do with the Monteverdi. Well done that group, but why do they never come to England?

They played at Salisury Festival about 4 years ago and were terrific, despite the addition of an unnecessary dancer. Most of the music , as I recall, came from the Tarantella and All'Improviso albums. For me, watching the array of unusual instruments was as fascinating as listening to the music. After the gig, I was fortunate enough to speak to Christina Pluhar who took some time to explain how the theorboe worked. She was extremely pleasant and interesting to talk to.

Although my principle love is jazz, I find that L'Arpeggiata tackle their music with the spirit of jazz musicians and the energy they bring to obscure music from the past makes their records compelling listening. Apart from the two aforementioned discs, I also have the recording of South american baroque music which is tremendous. This has just been released but without the DVD that was incorporated in the original package. Fascinating to hear them tackle Juan Tizol's classic "Caravan", for many years a staple of Duke Ellington's orchestra.

Cheers

Ian
