EL 032313 - Liquide perle

Click to enlargeA city on a distant hill represented freedom for Renzo in the Italian novel, The Betrothed. The city in question was Bergamo, in the proud territory of Veneto. There, Tramaglino hoped to put his endangered life beyond risk. And yet even the author of this classic tale, Alessandro Manzoni, was unaware that Giovanni Antonio Terzi, the prince of Italian lutenists, was alive and living in the city in the very period in which his story is set. Little evidence remains of the fact today, and little attention has been paid to his existence in the intervening years, yet Terzi was without doubt one of the best-known and the greatest Italian lutenists of the sixteenth century. The history of this excellent CD is mingled with that of a bizarre personality with a musical soul. A mysterious man, who came from and vanished into nowhere, contributed to the beauty of this production, leaving us a recording that leaves one totally speechless.

    Dear E lucevan,

    this is one of the most pleasant lute recordings I’ve heard in quite some time. I congratulate you all on this magnificent recording, which uses the lute/voice medium to an optimum level, gives me great pleasure, and lets me hope that you guys and gals will continue to make such superior music as long as I’m around. To execute this difficult repertory to such a high level is most commendable. Congratulations!

    And Heartfelt THANKS!
