4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful, varied, complex yet energized. June 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a collection of 17th Century instrumental music from Italy. My favorites were the many pieces where viola, lute, mandolin, and guitar predominate. Several pieces in the collection also included harpsicord, which I found to be less 'light on their feet', more structured, than the works where lute, guitar, and mandolin predominated.

The works are varied with Scarlatti, Rossi, Vitali, Strozzi, Bassano, Rognoni, Matteis, Pasquini, and Arrigoni. I was unfamiliar with most of these composers and welcomed the introduction.

The works also vary in length with some pieces a delightful 1:21 minutes to the final piece at 12:33 minutes.

The more I listen to this CD the more enchanting it becomes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and Refreshing November 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful CD of Baroque music from 17th Century Italy. I enjoyed many of the pieces including Sonata De Basso Solo performed by Gregorio Strozzi.
The music was refreshingly different from the "ordinarily wonderful" Baroque I listen to. This collection is truly worth the purchase.
