Notes and Editorial Reviews

The series ‘L’Oreille de…’ from Cypres and the Huelgas Ensemble, that began with "L’Oreille de Zurbarán" and "L’héritage de Petrus Alamire,” juxtaposes the music of a particular period and the creative world of a contemporaneous painter, scribe or explorer. What might he have listened to if he had had a transistor radio, a hifi system or the possibility of streaming on a computer? In conjunction with the exhibition: "Theodoor van Loon, a Caravaggist between Rome and Brussels" in BOZAR Brussel, this album introduces the first Southern Netherlands Caravaggist between Rome and Brussels through the music of the seventeenth century. Paul Van Nevel has selected some emblematic pieces played in Italy, where Read more van Loon used to live between 1602 and 1608, and in the musical chapel of Albert and Isabelle.

REVIEW:

We so rarely get to hear many of the composers represented here; and if not all of the music is stunningly original, so well is it made that it positively shines when presented in performances as poised and polished as these. Van Nevel plays the notes more or less straight, in the best sense.
