Profeti della Quinta - Salomone Rossi: Il Mantovano Hebreo - Early Music Review


15 February 2014
Early Music Review

Several of the secular vocal items have familiar titles, the first being 'Sfogava con le stelle', utterly different from Monteverdi's declamatory setting...The third element is the instrumental pieces.

Rossi was involved in music in Mantua along with Monteverdi in the first decade of the 1600's, and his music is, despite its generally short length, impressive (30 pieces in 60 minutes), as indeed are the performers, from Galilee.

The Profeti won the York competition in 2011 - judging by this CD, deservedly...I certainly recommend this CD strongly.
