Notes and Editorial Reviews

At the end of the 15th century, a young Roman shepherd discovered by accident the remains of the ancient palace built by Emperor Nero, the Domus Aurea or golden house. Thereafter, all the great artists of what History today calls Renaissance (Raffaello, Michelangelo ...) would descend into these « grottoes » to admire the last remains of Ancient Rome's painting and would launch a movement aspiring to a return to the times of Latin splendour. Amazingly vigorous, the erudite and exciting disc recorded by Roberto Festa's Daedalus ensemble leads us to rediscover the musical side of this school, of which Virgil was the model, and which will leave its mark on the whole of 16th century Europe.
