Product details

17th century Italian composer Girolamo Frescobaldi was conservative in style and yet an innovator in many ways. The group "La Romanesca" presents some of his extraordinary improvisatory toccatas, some more imitative polyphonic instrumental music, and songs from his arie musicale of 1630.

There is much instrumental diversity to be found here: countertenor, organ, harpsichord, recorders and viola da gamba are all heard in various combinations.
