Notes and Editorial Reviews

In his new solo archlute recital, the Italian lutenist Rosario Conte plays works by Alessandro Piccinini and his son, Leonardo Maria Piccinini, in a very virtuosic and emotional interpretation. This recording offers a fresh view on Italian 17th Century repertoire. It does not only show the complexity and difficulty of the compositions, but rather discloses their deep beauty and grace, therefore revealing the true humanistic background of this outstanding musical era.
