Capriccio di battaglia a due stromenti

14:27
   


The Modenese firebrand, lute virtuoso, composer, poet and artist Bellerofonte Castaldi (1580–1649) – the Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen of his day – set his own poems to his own music in a lyrical style that captured the dynamism of the emerging Baroque. Castaldi’s dance-songs and madrigals for one, two or more voices – drawn from his monody collection Primo mazzetto (Venice, 1623) and the manuscript Modena 239 (c. 1670) – framed his hopes, dreams and disappointments with fresh and unforgettable melodies. The duos for theorbo and tiorbino, a tiny theorbo that Castaldi himself invented, are contrapuntal showpieces from his Capricci a due stromenti (Modena, 1622), a highly unusual collection of theorbo solos and duos, songs and poetry that he himself engraved and decorated with his own freehand artwork.
 

"... Dolata’s group, Il Furioso, performs this disc with skill and sensitivity. Sopranos Laura Fabris, Janet Youngdahl and Eugenia Corrieri are all spot on in terms of pitch and blend well, while Gian Paolo Fagotto provides a poerful and secure foil in his pieces. The accompaniment of Victor Coelho and Dolata can be nicely subdued, giving the vocal numbers a troubadour quality, but in their solos they truely shine. For those inerested in an alternative world to Monteverdi or the beginnings of the Venetian style, this is an indespensible disc."

Bertil van Boer - Fanfare - July/August 2013


‘...finely crafted and occasionally virtuosic duets... […] Dolata and Coelho are sure-fingered and refined lutenists… pure, flexible voices’
 

International Record Review - July/August 2009

‘Il nuovo cd della piccola etichetta inglese Toccata Classics è una piacevolissima scoperta. Non tanto per l’autore… quanto per la bellezza della musica, che sorprende per la sua modernità e dunque per l’immediatezza. […] Queste erano le vere “Hits” del secolo e riascoltando questo disco, capiamo bene il perchè.’

‘… a delightful discovery. Not only for the composer... but also for the beauty of the music, which is surprising in its modernity and immediacy. […] These were the ‘Hits’ of the century and listening to this disc, you can well understand why’  *****

Gabriele Formenti

CD Classico - July 2009

‘This disc offers a most interesting and musically captivating portrait of an intriguing early 17th century Italian figure.’

Johan van Veen

MusicWeb - August 2009

‘...quite stunning… The virtuosity of the Italians is equally matched by the soprano Janet Youngdahl who negotiates the stratosphere with ease… […] beautifully performed by Dolata and Coelho with crisp sense of rhythm, neat passage work, beautifully clear contrapuntal lines and nicely judged contrasts in dynamics. […] a vivid portrait of one of the most talented composers of the early 17th century.’

‘I agree with Johann van Veen in welcoming this enterprising recording’

Brian Wilson

 

MusicWeb - March 2010

‘The performers on this disc are internationally known masters... From the outset we are treated to a concert from this “free-spirit” composer as he might have presented it. [...] This disc is an excellent introduction to a long-lost Italian artistic genius and a highly polished project worthy of your attention.’
