La Venexiana


Claudio Cavina


With the re-release of La Venexiana's recording of Il terzo libro (complete with a new essay penned by Stefano Russomanno), Glossa's Monteverdi Edition now comprises eight volumes, all available in the attractively and imaginatively unified design style which has become the hallmark of the label.

La Venexiana a group made up of singers formerly with Concerto Italiano has much to offer in this repertoire, not least a wealth of experience in performing it and, of course, a natural affinity with the language. The voices are perfectly balanced to produce a glorious, rich sound, and their ability to communicate the poetry and power of the texts is second to none..The excellent recording detailed yet sonorous and the elegant packaging by Glossa also deserve mention. - BBC Music ****/*****

In their Monteverdi Editions, La Venexiana bring a dramatic delivery of the words and a uniquely Italian blend of solo voices to this glorious music, unrivalled on disc. - The Sunday Times
