'An impressive debut, beautifully recorded' (Gramophone)

Amarilli mia bella

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Rome, where the brilliant Orazio Michi played for Cardinal Montalto, is represented by the present author’s own transcription of Amarilli mia bella (surely one of the ‘most beautiful and artificial pieces’) in the ornate style of seventeenth-century harp playing. Giuliano Caccini, sometimes referred to as ‘Giulio Romano’, studied in Rome as a singer, lute player and harpist before entering into service at the Medici court in Florence.
