Notes and Editorial Reviews



FRA’ DIAVOLO Accordone Ens ARCANA A 359 (77:35 Text and Translation)


This well-filled disc is subtitled “Music in the streets of the kingdom of Naples,” but it evokes traditional folk music through the interpretations of three members of the ensemble. Ten of the 22 selections are identified as traditional, seven of the others as compositions credited to Giuseppe de Vittorio, whose relationship to one of the singers is not stated. Marco Beasley and Pino de Vittorio divide the songs between them or sing duets, Read more while Guido Morini plays harpsichord and leads the ensemble, which includes four other members and four guest gambists. The music is full of life and the notes are evocative without telling much about the selections or even the period of their origin. The program is the outcome of a decade’s collaboration among the three artists. The disc title evokes the Neapolitan bandit of Napoleonic times who was the subject of Auber’s most popular opera. Anyone who is interested in the traditional music of this region will enjoy it thoroughly.
