Profeti della Quinta - Salomone Rossi: Il Mantovano Hebreo - Choir & Organ

15 April 2014
Choir & Organ
4 Stars

At last, a convincing, celebratory overview of Monteverdi's Jewish friend and collaborator in Mantua...Rossi the assured, accomplished innovator shines out of lovingly rendered, textured performances. Gracious, sprightly instrumentals and two falsettists, imparting a bright and occasionally eerie glow to the male vocal quintet, particularly please in this magnificently immediate SACD recording.
