Macque, Giovanni de - The Keyboard School - Falcone, Fabio Antonio



Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Comprised of 25 tracks and featuring eight different composers, this release celebrates the best of Giovanni de Macque and his contemporaries in late16thcentury Naples. Each piece hails from the Luigi Rossi manuscript, a collection compiled in 1617 that survives to this day, giving us an extraordinary overview of the keyboard compositions written for the aristocrats who ruled the Kingdom of Naples at the time. Indeed, at a time when wealthy families were striving to retain their power and influence as the lower classes benefitted from a sharp economic upturn, the music of this period was highly complex, still exclusively aimed at the cultivated upper classes: extreme chromaticism as well as extensive use of polyphony and harmonic audacity are common traits of these works.On his arrival in Naples, De Macque made sure to curry favour with the right people, including Fabrizio Gesualdo, whose son Carlo became a famous composer in his own right. Works by both men, along with other renowned composers of their day, are included on this release, and the connection between De Macque and Gesualdo is clear to see. De Macque was far ahead of his time, and became the forerunner of the Neapolitan keyboard school, counting Mayone, Trabaci and Rossi among his pupils, all of whom feature on this disc. This release is a testament to the close artistic circle operating at Gesualdos court at the time: the stylistic unity between these composers and homogenous character of the pieces is by no means incidental.Fabio Antonio Falcone, a passionate performer of Renaissance and early Baroque music, has carefully selected the period instruments for this recording, leading to a highly authentic performance of these historical works. Having studied in The Netherlands with renowned harpsichordist Bob van Asperen, he has already made a name for himself, winning the special prize for Outstanding Performance of a 17thcentury Italian Composition at the National Harpsichord Competition in Pesaro in 2007. He is regularly invited to perform internationally and is often heard in conjunction with his ensemble Pizzicar Galante. This is his first release for Brilliant Classics.
