Il Transilvano

Album cover art for upc 3760135103126
Catalog: AMY312


Drawing from the famous Codex Caioni, a collection of 17th century music and, from the repertoire of traditional Hungarian ballads, this second recording by the PRISMA ensemble enhances the remarkable richness of cultural and musical exchanges between Italy and Hungary. PRISMA unites four young musicians in a joint search for particularly expressive, bizarre, colorful music from the 16th and 17th centuries. The "very lively art of interpretation combined with technical perfection and tonal beauty makes every phrase seem as if it was just being thought up", writes the Göttinger Tageblatt about a concert by the quartet in the festival series. "Exceptional. Exciting. Cannot be categorized. And unbelievably good." (Kreiszeeitung Wesermarsch)
