EL 012311 - Folias

Click to enlargeIt is the year 1625, it is carnival time. They are waiting for the arrival of Giovanni Paolo Foscarini, the supreme virtuoso of the chitarra battente. For some time now tales have been circulating about his extraordinary playing and his compositions, at times joyous and at times haunting, capable of touching even the most hostile hearts. A carriage drives up to the Palazzo, a man wrapped in a cloak turns up at the door and is accompanied to the music room; he carries a guitar. He sits down; he tunes his instrument and starts to play. In a few moments all those present are overcome by an unknown emotion; the chords follow one another spread over the bass line of the Follia di Spagna. That new way of playing has never been heard before and the long wait is instantly forgotten.

    Your site would be so much easier to use if you put catalog number for each disc. I could not even find some of them !

    Best regards
