Notes and Editorial Reviews
The pre-eminent New York-based vocal ensemble TENET debuts on Avie with 'UNO + ONE: Italia Nostra', an imaginatively programmed and idiomatically performed recording that features the canzonette, arie and scherzi by Monteverdi, alongside contemporary Italian masters Castaldi, Castello, Kapsberger, Pesenti and Rossi.

"UNO + ONE: Italia Nostra" reflects TENET’s hallmark qualities of innovative programming, virtuosic singing, and a particular command of repertoire from the Renaissance and Baroque eras. At the heart of "UNO + ONE" are the canzonette, arie and scherzi by Monteverdi, a composer with whom TENET is indelibly associated due to their groundbreaking annual performances of the towering Vespers of 1610, which they inaugurated in the work’s 400th anniversary year of 2010. Sopranos Jolle Greenleaf and Molly Quinn, together with their instrumental colleagues - the crème de la crème of the New York early music scene - offer inspired and idiomatic performances of these sublime gems alongside works by contemporary Italian masters Bellerofonte Castaldi, Johannes Kapsberger, Martino Pesenti and Luigi Rossi.
