Biagio Marini (1594-1663)
Madrigali & Symphonie a 1, 2, 3, 4 e 5 voci, Op. II 1618
Biagio Marini, composer and violinist from Brescia is universally recognized as one of the most singular personalities of the first half of the seventeenth century especially for his great contribution to the development of violin technique and the genre of the triosonate. In fact, his profile is much more articulated and as a whole is represented more by vocal works than instrumental. This work, discovered by the collaboration of Musicali Affetti from Vicenza with some researchers from the University of Strasbourg, finally can be performed by the Musicali Affetti ensemble directed by Fabio Missaggia and the RossoPorpora vocal ensemble directed by Walter Testolin.
