AVIE welcomes the pre-eminent New York-based vocal ensemble TENET to the label with UNO + ONE: Italia Nostra, an imaginative recording that reflects the group's hallmark qualities of innovative programming, virtuosic singing, and a
particular command of repertoire from the Renaissance and Baroque eras. At the heart of UNO + ONE are the canzonette,arie and scherzi by Monteverdi, a composer with whom TENET is indelibly associated due to their groundbreaking annual performances of the towering Vespers of 1610 which they inaugurated in the work's 400th anniversary year of 2010. Sopranos Jolle Greenleaf and Molly Quinn, together with their instrumental colleagues - the crème de la crème of the New York early music scene - offer inspired and idiomatic performances of these sublime gems alongside works by contemporary Italian masters Bellerofonte Castaldi, Johannes Kapsberger, Martino Pesenti and Luigi Rossi. www.tenetnyc.com

critical acclaim for TENET
"TENET's singers and players registered not only the notes but also the space around the notes: there were superbly timed pauses, lingering contemplations of sustained chords, phrases like exhalations." - The New Yorker

"Within a performance that was so rigorously respectful of historical practice, moments like these showed the performers communing with this 400-year-old devotional music in ways that were playful, thoughtful and surprisingly personal." - The New York Times
