About

Organist and harpsichordist Maria Luisa Baldassari leads us to discover Andrea Antico da Montona, musician and printer of the early Renaissance. His great ability as an engraver allowed him to compete with Ottaviano Petrucci - the undisputed prince of musical printing - and his soul as a ‘cultural entrepreneur’ led him to the courageous and pioneering operation of proposing the intavolatura (the reduction of vocal or instrumental polyphonic compositions) for the keyboard, instead of the lute as it was in vogue at the time. For the recording of the Frottole Intabulate (the frottola is the most popular Italian folk song in use between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries), Maria Luisa Baldassari takes advantage of performing original period instruments: the spinetta, harpsichord, clavichord, the rare and archaic clavisimbalum, and the magnificent 1533 Vincenzo Colombi organ of the Chiesa del SS. Corpo di Cristo in Valvasone (Udine).
