Notes and Editorial Reviews

For as much as Fabio Bonizzoni is drawn to the splendours of Baroque music for voices and orchestra – as demonstrated through his awardwinning recordings with La Risonanza – his keyboardplaying instincts are constantly urging him to tackle masterpieces of the keyboard repertory. Most recently having applied his musical insight and virtuosity to Bach’s Die Kunst der Fuge, Bonizzoni now pits himself against another, albeit earlier, Baroque master in Girolamo Frescobaldi. Frequentlycited as being as important for keyboard music as Monteverdi was for vocal and dramatic fare, the genius of the Ferraraborn Frescobaldi was amply recognized when working in Rome and Florence – periods when he published (and revised) the two books of toccatas (but Read more including canzonas and partitas or variations sets) recorded by Bonizzoni here. Frescobaldi’s toccatas allow for – and draw from Bonizzoni – great interpretative flexibility, calling for rhythmic freedom, not to say drama and emotion. Indeed, Bonizzoni, clearly mindful of the new demands of the seconda prattica in Frescobaldi’s time, likens the toccatas to being madrigals without words:poetry lies at the heart of his performances. This new recording from Glossa has Fabio Bonizzoni playing on a splendid modern copy of an Italian Baroque harpsichord and on the idiosyncratic organ of the Basilica of Santa Barbara in Mantua. Along the way, Bonizzoni has puzzled out – and describes in the booklet – how best to draw out the sound appropriate for Frescobaldi’s music from this mysterious instrument. Read less
