Raffaele Pé (countertenor)
Chiara Granata (triple harp)
David Miller (theorbo)

Rising star countertenor Raffaele Pé returns to the Resonus label (see Bella Dama - Resonus RES10115) with an album entitled La lira di Orfeo: A tribute to Gualberto Magli.

Joined by renowned triple harpist Chiara Granata and theorbo player David Miller, Raffaele presents a beautiful programme inspired by the early-seventeenth-century career of the castrato Gualberto Magli and the continous journey of his life, beginning with a compacted operina of Claudio Monteverdi's L'Orfeo and works from Sigismondo D'India, Johann Nauwach, Francesca Caccini & Giovanni Trabacci amongst others. The album also features the premiere recording of Solo et Pensoso, written for this recording by Alessandro Ciccolini.

'[...] an ideal showcase for the virtuosity and dexterity of Pè’s voice, the three characters placing very different demands on the singer, a challenge to which he rises admirably; Chiara Granata on triple harp and David Miller on theorbo provide such a richness of sound that one never misses the full orchestra'
Early Music Today

'The countertenor Raffaele Pé has a bright, lucid timbre that cuts often to the heart of things, confidence and athleticism in the high register, and a hint of sweetness lower down'

'[Pé] shines as brightly as on that earlier Resonus album'
MusicWeb International

'Raffaele Pé leads his singing with confidence and beauty, his voice is shiny, with a splendid timbre.'
