Primo e Secondo Libro di Diversi Capricci

Too low to display


We're sorry, but there's no news about "Ascanio Mayone" right now.

Although Girolamo Frescobaldi is undoubtedly the best known figure of the period covered by this CD, most of the pieces chosen are due, however, to much less popular composers, but of unquestionable artistic value, which is sure to be a discovery for many music lovers: from Antonio Valente, Giovanni Macque, Ascanio Mayone or Giovanni Maria Trabaci, the creators of the Neapolitan school (that composed works with much chromaticisms and dissonances, like those of later composers represented here, as Giovanni Salvatore, Gregorio Strozzi or Bernardo Storace), to Luzzasco Luzzaschi, Ercole Pasquini, or Fescobaldi itself, representing the schools of Ferrara and Rome, this recording is a wonderful and amazing promenade through the essence of Italian keyboard in this crucial period in the history of music.

A Neapolitan delegation of virtuoso musicians and singers was invited to participate in the marriage celebrations of Philip II in Madrid (1543), among them the harpist Gian Leonardo, the 'new Orpheus' of this era. These musicians were members of the capella reale, the orchestra of the royal court of Naples. The first maestri di capella were Spaniards followed by Jean de Macque who was later joined by his pupils Giovanni Maria Trabaci und Ascanio Mayone. In the capella reale, harpists also found regular employment.

Ascanio Mayone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wenn es eine verrückte Szene in der Harfenmusik gegeben hat, dann in Neapel um die Wende zum 17. Jahrhundert. Ascanio Mayone komponierte Musik für Harfe und Cembalo virtuos und doch als wäre sie der Barockharfe (Tripelharfe) auf den Leib geschrieben. Auf der CD stelle ich sein Libro II umfassend vor.
