Giovanni Maria Trabaci lived from 1575 to 1647. A highly prolific composer, he left a vast oeuvre of vocal and instrumental music. His works for keyboard are especially important: his bold, forward looking style, full of daring chromaticisms and unexpected harmonic turns, have paved the way for Frescobaldi and others.

Francesco Cera plays a selection of Ricercares, Canzonas and Capriccii on these 2 new CDs. Cera is the ideal advocate of this highly original music: he knows the style inside out, and has the right dramatic approach, using a magnificent harpsichord built by Roberto Livi, as well as the historic organ built in 1570, in the Church of SantíAntonio, Salandra, Italy.

The booklet contains interesting information on the instruments, liner notes and the artist biography.
