Music Of The Italian Baroque DVD

Il Giardino Armonico

Many Early Music lovers will greet this DVD with a relieved sigh of 'Thank goodness - at last!' The engaging Italian 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 colour. Yet as well as regaling the discerning music-lover's ear, there is also much for the 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, in a wholly satisfying and successful combination. Bonus - Introductions by the musicians and score as subtitle for all Vivaldi compositions.
