L’occhio del cor

Arcana

ensemble LaReverdie & Cristophe Deslignes

Whether singing or playing instruments, the musicians take great care not to overplay the composer’s subtle, complex counterpoint or to lose a sense of the overall line in the many virtuosic passages. The performances do justice to the sophisticated complexity of the counterpoint without losing the edgy energy that seems to permeate medieval Italian music. The musicians are thoroughly committed to this repertoire and it shows. Highly recommended. (Fanfare – January/February 2020)

 

They do everything with verve and commitment, giving each piece its own colour and meaning. To say that their performances are technically flawless is perhaps to miss the point, but that helps everything to work…there is a quality of musical exchange, of understanding where the pressure-points must come and of clear projection that is a rare pleasure to hear. (Gramophone Magazine – August 2019)
