This CD is the recording of a concert held inside the Salone delle Feste in Urbino’s ducal palace. A very special concert, because for the first time in centuries live music resounded inside this palace once owned by Federico of Montefeltro. Among these pieces some were composed by court musician Bartolomeo Barbarino known as Il Pesarino, who often let his wonderful singing voice resound in this Palazzo. A live performance is never perfect, but it is by definition alive. The artists were not only required to sing and play impeccably, but also to warm with their performance the large audience crowded into these centuries-old walls in the freezing cold. The cold was soon replaced by the warmth of the performers, as you yourselves can hear.
