To sense the emotional charge coursing through Carlo Gesualdo at the time when he was composing his Sixth Book of Madrigals, there is no better starting point than a thrilling new recording being issued on Glossa from La Compagnia del Madrigale. Some of the finest singers in the madrigal repertoire today – including Giuseppe Maletto, Daniele Carnovich and Rossana Bertini, and they have been refining their a cappella artistry over more than twenty years with groups such as La Venexiana and Concerto Italiano – now restore humanness, warmth, pictorial beauty and richness to one of the most complex cycles in all music. This marks the group’s triumphant entry onto a label which has always made the exploration of the Italian madrigal repertory one of its cornerstones.
 
Allied to the ensemble’s musical reading is a reevaluation of the essence of the madrigalism of Gesualdo (the Prince of Venosa) by Marco Bizzarini in an absorbing accompanying essay, which draws upon many reactions to the music made during the composer’s own lifetime. Bizzarini highlights the extraordinary beauty, the intense expression of the sentiments and the mastery of counterpoint in Gesualdo’s “23 canapés of caviar” (as Stravinsky termed them).
 
This new interpretation – and its wealth of nuances – offered by La Compagnia del Madrigale majestically surmounts all the dissonances and difficulties in these madrigals to lay bare the expressive intensity of the music. Graced by an attractive cover design, wholly in keeping with standards of the house, this new recording of Gesualdo’s Sixth Book is a joy to behold and read, as well as to listen to.
