The Nine Books of Monteverdi's madrigals span the composer's career, from his 20th year to his old age, and provide a fascinating look at the transition from Renaissance practice through the early Baroque. Written for five voices, the Third Book, published in 1592, dates from the composer's 25th year, and reveals not only a master of Renaissance counterpoint, but an original thinker with a command of a broad expressive range. Two of the madrigals, "Vattene pur crudel" and "Vivrò fra I miei tormenti," each with three parts, are essentially miniature dramas that foreshadow the composer's groundbreaking operas and his extraordinary dramatic gifts. The vocal ensemble La Venexiana has recorded all nine books, and the authority and radiance of its performances make them a treasure for anyone who loves early vocal music. The group's singing is notable for its astonishing purity, flawless intonation, and seamless legato. The tone is exceptionally sweet and smooth, and even in the most wrenchingly emotional passages the group never sacrifices the integrity of its sound. In spite of the individuality of the members' voices, the blend is consistently warm and silken. Claudio Cavina leads the group in performances whose rhythmic flexibility mirrors the texts' changing moods; the singers respond to him like a single organism. Glossa's sound is ideal for the repertoire: intimate, nicely ambient, and absolutely clean.

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.
