Il Sesto Libro De Madrigali
[reviewed June 2007]

Lamento d’Ariana, Zefiro torna e’l bel tempo rimena, Una donna fa l’altre, A dio florida bella, Lagrime d’amante al sepolcro dell’amata, Ohimè il bel viso, Qui rise tirsi, Misero alcei, Batto qui pianse ergasto, Presso un fiume tranquillo

Concerto Italiano/Rinaldo Alessandrini

naïve 30-423

Pending I Fagiolini's Monteverdi releases, including (who knows) that possibility of an DVD of their Full Monteverdi presentation, the strongest possible recommendation for the Sixth Book of Madrigals in immaculate and passionate accounts by Concerto Italiano.

The elegance and vocal virtuosity in these moving performances will leave you no regrets that it is a mere CD !

Full texts and translations, of course, and with harp, theorboes and harpsichord accompanying the seven singers. Delicious!
