Label: Essential Media Mod
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Classic audiophile recording from 1953 featuring Noah Greenberg conducting the Primavera Singers of the Pro Musica Antiqua of New York performing Adriano Banchieri’s “Festino.” The Festino nella sera del giovedi grasso avanti cena was published in Venice (1608) by Ricciardo Amadino, a printer. It was written to be performed on a festival evening – that of “Fat Thursday before supper.” This is the last feast day before Lent (the equivalent of Shrove Tuesday) and was the occasion for much eating, drinking and merriment. Festino is scored for five mixed voices and is made up of twenty sections. Interspersed throughout the work is Italian keyboard music of the 16th and 17th centuries. These pieces are not part of Festino, but their inclusion is in keeping with the spirit of the presentation of such an entertainment. It serves as a fine contrast to the vocal sound and presents some of the great instrumental music of the period. All selections have been newly remastered.
