About the album

Italian aria’s from special Italian collections

This recording contains aria’s by Italian composers, performed by the Margiono Quintet, which exists of four musicians of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam and the fabulous soprano Charlotte Margiono.

Arie antiche' was the title of a collection published by the Italian musicologist and editor Alessandro Parisotti in 1885. In title and in essence, this is an early-music collection before the term had even been thought of. Each item is characteristic of its period. Parisotti’s collection was so successful, that it was followed by two further collections. All but a handful of the arias on this recording can be found in Parisotti's collection. It may be said that Parisotti's collections helped bring about a new taste for such music that has only truly flowered in our own time.
