A passionate soprano and a dynamic continuo are the irresistible elements of Capriola di Gioia, the Belgian ensemble around Amaryllis Dieltiens and Bart Naessens. Aeolus listeners already know them from their collaboration with the Flanders Recorder Quartet. The young musicians are already firmly established in the Belgian and Dutch music scene.
On its debut CD, the ensemble presents secular Italian vocal music for soprano and continuo by famous composers, such as Monteverdi and Kapsberger, as well as by less known masters.
This dramatic, sensual and atmospheric recording, which removes all dust and haze from the incisive and catchy works, was made in the world-famous Begijnhofkerk in Bruges.
