Profeti della Quinta - Salomone Rossi: Il Mantovano Hebreo - Toccata


15 January 2014
Toccata alte musik aktuell
Robert Strobl

The instrumental works are performed with extreme delicacy, which makes the listener melt away. The secular vocal pieces breathe spirit and esprit; they please and captivate the listener's attention. Yet, the sacred psalms are so intense, so sensitive, so pious that they send shivers down the spine. The overall interpretation is thus exemplary. Again and again, one finds oneself in a new world of emotions. And what a dazzling composer, what a spectacularly simple and just interpretation!
