2012 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of one of the most influential musicians of the Venetian School, Giovanni Gabrieli. This new hybrid SACD presents his ‘La Musica Per San Rocco’, a sequence written in 1608 to celebrate the feast of St Rocco. It is performed by the vocal group Melodi Cantores and the early music ensemble La Pifarescha. They are directed by organist and conductor Elena Sartori.

Born in Ravenna in Italy, Elena Sartori studied with Daniel Chorzempa at the Musik Akademie of Basel and the Hochschule Mozarteum of Salzburg, and with Helmut Rilling at the Bach Akademie of Stuttgart. She set up the ensemble Melodi Cantores in 2000 in order to make a first reconstruction, performance and recording of Giovanni Battista Martini’s 'Requiem'. Since then the group has been involved in many musical projects, and has become particularly known for performing rarely heard repertoire.
