On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of Giovanni Gabrieli’s death, who was one of the most influential musicians of the Venetian School, we are pleased to present you with this extraordinary recording of ’’La Musica per San Rocco’’. 
’’La Musica per San Rocco’’ can be imagined as a type of music event which must have been usual in 17th Century Venice, and which represented its relish for splendour and freedom from strict schemes very well.  Thomas Coryat wrote 1611 in his report ’’Coryat’s Crudities’’: ’’The third feast was upon Saint Roches day being Saturday and the sixth day of August, where I heard the best musicke that ever I did in all my life both in the morning and in the afternoone, so good that I would willingly goe an hundred miles a foote at any time to hear the like...This feast consisted principally of musicke, which was both vocall and instrumentall, so good, so delectable, so rare, so admirable, so superexcellent, that I did even ravish and stupifie all those strangers that never heard the like...’’. 
 
Look forward to this new recording with the ensembles Melodi Cantores and La Pifarescha (on historic instruments) directed by Elena Sartori, which is presented by ARTS in June 2012 as high-quality, multi-channel Hybrid SACD and superior 24 bit/96 kHz sound quality.

 "Well researched and beautifully performed and recorded... Vocal ensemble Melodi Cantores and La Pifarescha on historic instruments are directed to great effect in this recording by Elena Sartori, and this is a highly enjoyable release which sounds terrific in plain stereo, and can blow your socks off in multi-channel surround. Thoroughly attractive."

 
Dominy Clements - MusicWeb-International.com - November 2012

"The choice of program is very valuable, both for the musicians who animate as well as for us as audience. In fact, the musicians emphasize the compositional singularity of Gabrieli, both in terms of dynamic and those of the musical phrase. The interpretation provides a perfect intelligibility that underlines the close relationship of text and music. The interpretation’s quality is characterized by a appropriate reading of the selected works and implementation’s accuracy. It takes us to the heart of the Venetian spirit of the time, ranging from pomp to reverence." 
 
Marie-Sophie Mosnier - Crescendo magazine - Ocotber 2012

"There is no doubt that this record represents a significant and bold step forward in the rediscovery of the music of Giovanni Gabrieli." 4 of 5 Stars.

                            Interpretation ****                                   Sound ****
 
"Music for the feast of Saint Roches from the pen of Giovanni Gabrieli, colored sound offered by the ensembles Melodi Cantores and La Pifarescha, both expertly and temperamentally lead by Elena Sartori. The disc provides a very nice portrait of Giovanni Gabrieli as a composer of truly independent dimension. Of course, the multi-voiced major movements in their exchange of fantastic sound concentration and finely opened passages are of the noblest of spacial art. The ’Magnificat’ for 33 voices gives a splendid impression thererof. But the canzoni, the intricate organ music or a surprisingly varied explicated litany show a most creative composer with the courage for individual solutions. Elena Sartori presents with her powerful formations an interesting as well as relevant program in full color." 
 
Dr. Matthias Lange - klassik.com - 19 September 2012

"... Conductor Elena Sartori is also the organist for the solo pieces, which sound glorious on the meantone-tuned  1565 Antegnati organ in the Mantuan Basilica. Sartori’s skill in conducting is exemplified by her interpretations of the repetitive "ora pro nobis" petitios and very long list of mary’s attributes in Litaniae Beatissimae Marie Virginis.  Far from sounding monotonous, the accumulating glory of the repeated phrase drives forward to the final Agnus Dei with confidence and fervent power... There are a number of very fine recordings of Venetian ceremonial music, and this ranks among them..."
