Album Notes

Si Dolce è il Tormento Diatribe ★★★★

The core of this exquisite CD, which combines Turrisi’s experience of 17th-century Italian music with jazz, is the trio of Turrisi (piano), Dan Bodwell (bass) and Seán Carpio (drums). Their performances of Salve Regina , Ciaccona , Lamento di Paolo e Francesca , Canzonetta Spirituale sopra la Nanna and La Monica are full of interplay that, even at its most flexible and imaginative, serves the music. Carpio is a subtle colourist, Bodwell combines solidity and mobility, and Turrisi, who composed most of the material, is in gorgeous form. His solo Toccata is a bonus. Brendan Doyle (clarinet/bass clarinet) and Richard Sweeney (theorbo, an early lute) appear on some tracks, but the album is really about this particularly striking trio.

Lovely music
Going to play this tomorrow in my class at NEC to show how Renaissance music is still evolving today. Thanks for making a great recording! :)
