Product Description

Review

"The expansion and contraction of arranged and improvised elements allows the original Baroque material to breathe authentically in our own time, resulting in a phantasmagoria whose haunting effects are only accentuated by ECM's beautifully spacious recording." -- Gramophone, on Lislevand's previous ECM release Nuove Musiche

A wonderfully original interpretation of Renaissance music. The old is mixed with whimsical improvisation and occasional singing. The result is pure delight.

This is a wonderful find.

The selections are interesting, the musicianship outstanding and the production perfect. But what I like the most is that it's just plain fun. The performance is exciting; a roller coaster ride that had me holding my breath and waiting for what was around the next corner.

I suspect that someone very concerned about "historically informed performance" will be less than thrilled with this. I say it's about time for an early music ensemble to have us all dancing in aisles, and a big thank you to Mr. Lislevand giving us that.

Beautiful music lovingly and spititedly performed. This is not the usual rendition of early music.It exhibits quite a measure of fresh air. This recording is an instant favorite of mine and will receive repeated playings.

This is an interesting, engaging, and lovely CD from the ECM label, which I think is widely considered to be an audiophile label--at least its recordings regularly get very favorable reviews in (unduly venerated) audio magazines. I personally have usually been disappointed, both musically and sonically, by ECM's records, which (sonically) tend too much to the cool/analytical side of the spectrum for my tastes.

Not so here, however. This recording is really good--the best I've heard from ECM--and so is the music (though I was underwhelmed by it on first listen--if you don't like it the first time you hear it, play it through at least once more; there are some lovely musical niceties that I did not appreciate the first time). I'm glad to have this CD. I'll be listening to it often.

It's lively, pulsing early Renaissance music which weaves together gorgeous instrumental passages with two beautiful soprano voices into an intricate and always surprising whole.. When I first listened to the CD I heard jongleur, Moorish, Spanish, and somehow something from synagogue music in a late medieval early renaissance fusion centered maybe on Venice. Amazing musicians, playing on period instruments, interpreting and recasting creatively. Diminuto is musical ornamentation by an elaboration of 32nd and 64th notes in contrast to the grace notes of Celtic origins which is the style of musical ornamentation more familiar to modern listeners. It's beautiful and evocative and I loved it from the first five notes.
