Sospiro: Alessandro Grandi: Complete Arias, 1626

$13.99 (1CD-Digipak)

World Première Recording

Musica Omnia presents the première recording of Alessandro Grandi’s complete arias for solo voice from his third volume of 1626, performed here by tenor Bud Roach as they would have been commonly heard at the time of their publication: with the singer accompanying himself on the baroque guitar. A contemporary of Claudio Monteverdi, Grandi found his greatest success with cantatas and arias for solo voice. These secular songs were among the most popular in Venice throughout the third decade of the 17th century, and are considered to represent the apogee of the genre. Like many of the song collections published by Vincenti, this volume includes “alfabeto” notation for the strummed Spanish guitar.

Track listing:

Alessandro Grandi- Arie a voce sola, libro terzo, Venice, 1626
1 Troppo, troppo fedele
2 Deh, vaga mia Clori
3 É si grave’l tormento
4 Consenti pur e ti pieghi
5 Ninfa crudele
6 Ridete meco, Amanti
7 Non può ferir Amor
8 Quando Amor dentr’un cor prende ricetto
9 Sotto aspetto ridente
10 Amore io più non ard
11 Empio cor, più non ti credo
12 Gioite, danzate
13 Lontan dal tuo bel volto
14 I nostri voti il ciel
15 Mai più durò d’Amor si lunga Guerra
16 Rompi rompi mio core
17 Al seren del tuo volto
18 Io non vo’ pianger più
19 Superbetta sei pur colta
20 Cruda e proterva
21 Folle, folle chi crede
22 Sprezzami, Bionda, e fuggimi
23 Breve è la vita, Amor
