About Diminuito

Product Description On Nuove Musiche, his highly successful ECM debut released in spring 2006, Norwegian master lutenist Rolf Lislevand led his own group of international early music virtuosi. The album presented ravishing and unorthodox accounts of mostly Italian instrumental music from the early Baroque. Based on Italian Renaissance sources from the 16th century - madrigals, chansons and virtuoso lute music - the new program goes even further back - from the "seconda pratica" of monophonic expressiveness to the "prima pratica" of polyphonic complexity. * Once again putting a strong emphasis on improvisation, Lislevand and his colleagues disclose the astounding modernity and emotional wealth in the music of composers such as Giovanni Antonio Terzi or Joan Ambrosio Dalza. Most of the music stems from the Veneto region of Italy where, during that period, strong influences of oriental and eastern music could be felt. Lislevand's group translates this with a lush scoring for deep instruments, both stringed and plucked. The album title Diminuito refers to the practice of virtuosic ornamentation of vocal lines, the "diminution" of larger rhythmic and harmonic units in most agile runs, scales and arpeggi. The album was recorded at the monastery of St. Gerold with a line-up including two of Trio Mediaeval's delightful sopranos, Anna Maria Friman and Linn Andrea Fuglesth. 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
