Notes and Editorial Reviews
Many Old Music lovers will greet this DVD video with a relieved sigh of ”Thank goodness – at last!“ The ensemble Il Giardino Armonico, founded in 1985 by Giovanni Antonini and Luca Pianca, here offers nothing less than a representative repertoire: mostly forgotten baroque Italian music, interpreted sonorously and expressively with verve, joy and an inexhaustible range of tonal color. Yet as well as regaling the discerning music–lover’s ear, there is also much for his eyes to enjoy: this video was recorded in Sicily, at various sites around Palermo, uniting the picturesque landscapes of southern Italy with the music of Antonio Vivaldi, Tarquinio Merula and others. A feast for eyes and ears therefore, in a wholly satisfying and successful combination.
