Songs and solo's from the time of Monteverdi
Maria-Luz Alvarez, soprano

Domenico Obizzi: Hor que vicin mi sento
Giovanni Paolo Foscarini: Capriccio sopra la ciaccona
Giovanni Pietro Berti: Giovanete ascoltate


“It is not only the repertory which is of interest here, including as it does arias by composers such as Domenico Obizzi, Giovanni Pietro Berti and Stefano Landi, but also the fact that the accompaniment is provided by a guitar, so that the arias are interspersed with some truly lovely solo pieces by Giovanni Paolo Foscarini and Francesco Corbetta, superbly played by Eisenhardt. Alvarez's voice is crystalline but warm, entirely suited to the demonstrative but simultaneously curiously intimate quality of these arias.”
Ivan Moody, Early Music 36 no 4 (2008)
