Lorenzo Ghielmi/Enrico Onofri/Margret K: Anno 1630 The music presented in this collection was originally composed or published around the year 1630. This is a hinge date, occurring as the Renaissance was winding down and the baroque period was starting up. However, this is not the same era as middle or late baroque period talent such as Vivaldi, Handel, or Bach. They were to codify the baroque. The music presented here was revolutionary music, experimental, unpredictable, and brilliant. Up until the early 17th century, music was considered in a fairly limited (and conservative) manner for the most part dictated by the Catholic church. It was as if a new musical philosophy dawned—and the composers of the day seized that new dawn and began reshaping the music from one composer to the next, one composition at a time.



The leaders in this recasting of music at the beginning of the baroque period were largely Italian and included Biagio Marini, Giovanni Battista Fontana, Carlo Farina, Dario Castello (Monteverdi's concertmaster in Venice), and Giovanni Paolo Cima—all of whom fused vocal and instrumental performance and brought the violin to the forefront of attention. The organ was enjoying an emergence and had many masters before Bach and Buxtahude. These included the great Girolamo Frescobaldi, Giovanni Trabaci, and Luigi Rossi. This collection includes compositions by these and other musicians. This music sounds more folk than high classical. The pieces have a short, quaint, antique character that is off the beaten path, a fact contributing generously to their charm. They are deftly performed and will delight fans of ancient and baroque music.
