About

From Claudio Monteverdi to JS Bach, the album Adoration by the Pandolfis Consort with countertenor Nicholas Spanos spans one century of baroque music history. Despite the stylistic developments that took place over this period there are still many aspects that these pieces have in common: the calm steps taken by the basso ostinato, the delicate, polyphonic weaving of the instruments and the melancholic, touchingly clear vocal part. Historical instruments and intense study of historical performance practice provide for exciting soundscapes. Besides Monteverdi and Bach, the arias, madrigals, motets and instrumental sonatas were composed also by lesser known composers from Italy, Germany/Austria and Poland like Giovanni Felice Sances, Giovanni Battista Bononcini, Jan Dismas Zelenka, Theodor Schwartzkopff, Stanisław Sylwester Szarzyński, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer and Francesco Cavalli.
