ROLAND DE LASSUS Io ti vorria contar... Transcriptions for lute

A selection of works by Roland de Lassus (Mons 1531 ca - Munich 1594) portraying all his stylistic potentialities, from dances to chansons, from madrigals to Battaglie.

Already famous during his lifetime (Ronsard, the famous poet of the Pleiade and a contemporary of him, already called him "le Divin"), his works were printed and in a large number of editions. The CD offers an excellent opportunity to rediscover, alongside few compositions by Vincenzo Galileo, all his peculiarities.

Evangelina Mascardi, solo lute, alto et soprano, with Frédéric Zigante, alto and tenor lute & Cornelia Demmer, bass lute
