When canzonas and sonatas by Marini, Merula, Fontana and Rossi swept across Europe in the early 17th century, the notes on the page could hardly keep pace with the vivid spirit of invention the music demanded. La Vaghezza explores the wildly virtuosic embellishments and interpretative freedom their early baroque counterparts employed to liberate the avant-garde music of the early 1600’s era from the shackles of the page, in the idiom that came to be known as the stylus fantasticus.

‘From the first notes, the quality of La Vaghezza’s playing was remarkable ... a tightly woven ensemble that gave an engaged and stirring performance. La Vaghezza seduced us with the quality and the élan of their interpretation’ Classicagenda
