A.Banchieri - Gemelli Armonici

The interpretation of the numerous dialogues (sung by one singer who change his voice according to the characters) has favored the embodiement of the characters from the commedia dell'arte, trying to play beyond the stereotypes embodied by the masks. While in total respect of the use of the time, the interpretation gives way to “sperimentazione” either by trust the text to a single singer and to the attention placed in the musical research, as evidenced by the choice of instruments. Following the indications of the author, as found in the notes to the "Prudenza Giovenile", a narrator reads the verses of introduction to each scene, “accompagnata dalla grazia dei musicisti che concertano un’amabile melodia a loro gusto”.

D.Scarlatti - The Complete Sonatas (Lester)

38 CD - MP3 192 Kbps - 45 RAR - 3.68 Gb

Uploaded - FileFactory

Richard Lester's coverage of the complete Scarlatti keyboard sonatas is very impressive indeed; it has the greatest advantage both of economy and of being made available in seven separate boxes. Lester's credentials are impeccable but, more importantly, he is obviously very enthusiastic about this repertoire and his spontaneous playing conveys that dedication. His style is admirably flexible and altogether most winning."A really exceptional issue on every count." ****
The Penguin Guide to Classical Recorded Music

Should be considered as first choice for potential collectors of the whole oeuvre… an enterprising Scarlatti project and a completist’s dream. Impressive work by any standards.
The Gramophone

Lovingly prepared… giving literally hundreds of pieces their first really convincing performances.
Eighteenth Century Music Magazine

Full of conviction, colour and character.
BBC Music Magazine

Lester plays with total conviction and authority, characterizing and colouring each work with incisive ornamentation and clear voice-leading, and his technique is entirely up to the enormous and varied challenges of these works. One can only sit back in astonishment and marvel at the sheer originality of Scarlatti's keyboard writing, of which Lester is a most ardent and persuasive advocate.
International Record Review

There are several complete sets on the market, but Lester consistently pushes the boundaries. His playing is intense, sharp and powerfully rhythmic. All these traits add up to an interpretation that portrays Scarlatti as an almost Lisztian virtuoso – an interpretation to which his music certainly stands up.

20 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 105 Mb

DepositFiles - FileFactory

Juan Blas de Castro (1561 – August 6, 1631) was a Spanish singer, musician, and composer.

Born in Barrachina, in the province of Teruel, Spain, he was the second of four brothers. In 1592, he became part of the court of the Duke of Alba in Alba de Tormes, Salamanca, together with his friend, the poet and playwright Lope de Vega. During his stay, he set to music several of Lope's poems. Both would leave Salamanca together. In 1597 Castro became a court musician to King Philip III of Spain, and, from June 15, 1599 an usher. He died in Madrid. (Wikipedia)

Faventina, The liturgical music of Codex Faenza 117

18 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 97Mb

DepositFiles - FileFactory

The Codex Faenza 117 in the Bibloteca Communale Manfredina is the oldest complete surviving manuscript of instrumental music in the world, started by a single scribe around 1380, but heavily recompiled between 1400 and 1420. In the early 1470s, yet another scribe scraped some of its pages clean and added yet more music, creating a "palimpsest"; a manuscript that has been recycled, yet contains traces of the information that went down before.

6. Lontan dalla mia diva
7. Nessun visse giamai più di me lieto
8. Là ver l’aurora che sì dolce l’aura

16. Ne spero i dolci dì tornin’indietro
17. Gitene liete rime ov’hor si siede

22. Mentre ch’al mar descenderanno i fiumi
23. Quai rime fur si chiare
24. Ecc’oscurati i chiari raggi al Sole
25. Rara beltà non mai più vista in terra
26. Questo doglioso stil colmo di pianto
27. Mai fu più crud’o spietata morte
28. Privo di fed’oltra l’usato corso
29. Ma voi fioriti e honorati colli

Chiara, sì chiaro è de' vostr'occhi il sole

Chiara, sì chiaro è de' vostr'occhi il sole
Che se l'augel, che per antico stile
Si rinnovella ai raggi d'Oriente
Qualche novella sente
Dal vostro vago lume, vago e gentile,
Havrà per cosa vile
Arder nel foco u'rinovar si sole,
Et cangierà per i vostr'occhi il sole.
