Product Notes

The works of the theorbist Bellerofonte Castaldi and the guitarist Domenico Pellegrini are little known but nonetheless remain fascinating to their performers today, as they not only give clear proof of fertile musical imagination but also raise many questions about how they should be performed. Although Castaldi was the first to praise the innovative style of his friend Monteverdi, his works are marked by a strong Renaissance spirit. Castaldi and Pellegrini chose not only the most classical forms (dances, courantes, galliards) but also the most archaic (branles, batailles, canzoni). Lutenist, theorbist and baroque guitarist Albane Imbs here presents her first solo album. She has founded her own ensemble, Les Kapsber'girls and also plays in ensembles led by Jordi Savall, Francois Lazarevich, Raphael Pichon and Rolf Lislevand, the great Norwegian lutenist/theorbist who was her teacher. Imbs and Lislevand here perform Castaldi's Capricci a due stromenti, the only example of music written for a duo of theorbo and tiorbino, this latter being a miniature theorbo conceived and played by Castaldi himself.
