Raffaele Pé (countertenor)
Chiara Granata (triple harp)
David Miller (theorbo)
Rising star countertenor Raffaele Pé returns to the Resonus label 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 continuous 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.
