There are two current complete works of Carlo Gesualdo’s Madrigals. Begun in 2013, the work by La Compagnia del Madrigale brings together the voices of the finest Italian Baroque singers, as well as those of Rossana Bertini, Giuseppe Maletto and Daniele Carnovich (the trio who founded La Compagnia del Madrigale in 2008). All of them were originally members of the ensemble La Venexiana.

The harmonic complexity of Gesualdo's work is a musical mountain and it’s difficult to climb. After the first two highly acclaimed volumes devoted to Book 3 and Book 6, here is the First Book. It was composed in 1594 during his stay in Ferrara with the composer Luzzasco Luzzaschi and the renowned women’s ensemble Concerto delle Donne. Luzzaschi was already cultivating the poignant chromatism that Gesualdo, an extravagante native of Naples, would go on to include in his own compositions.

After the dissonance and dizzying harmonic shifts in the first two volumes, this First Book of Madrigals for five a capella voices feels more classical, especially as our madrigalists know exactly how to make the rich polyphony pop: with fluidity, purity and softness. It’s impossible not to admire the vocal quality, the intensity of expression and supple melismas contained within this incredible music. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

Jordi Savall: Music, life and recording

It was a rainy October night in the Bugey. On October nights, it's always raining in the Bugey. It was around midnight. There were fifty of us, waiting in the cold, the wet and the rapt silence at the Ambronay Festival. All of a sudden, and without a sound, Jordi Savall was there, sopping wet in a white raincoat, like Bogart in Casablanca, holding onto a hard case shaped like a human body. Moving slowly, he drew out not a person but a viola de gamba, which he started tuning and stringing with the greatest care. And then the miracle descended upon the auditorium.
