Marta Almajano - Per un bacio / Harmonia Mundi Iberica CD Audio 2005
The standard textbook view is that Italian solo songs (together with duets and trios) were an early 17th-century ‘invention’, facilitated by the arrival of the basso continuo. In practice, there is not only the usual story of precedents from the previous century, but also the performance tradition of rearranging fully vocal textures for solo voice and accompaniment. The real novelty of the printed songbooks that followed on the heels of Caccini’s pathbreaking collection Le nuove musiche is an aesthetic one in which the accent is now on the myriad possibilities of the human voice, the expressive power of texts, and the ability of music to fuse words and sound to move the affections.
