Canzon Cromatica


Fabrizio Fillimarino was a lutenist in Gesualdo’s academy, and the sour chromatics of his opening motif add a distinctly Neapolitan touch to the Canzon Cromatica. This piece is found in a manuscript copied by the composer Luigi Rossi for Macque, his teacher.

Fabrizio Fillimarino fut luthiste à l’académie de Gesualdo. Les aigres chromatismes de son motif d’ouverture apportent une touche typiquement napolitaine à la Canzon Cromatica, qui figure dans un manuscrit copié par le compositeur Luigi Rossi pour son professeur, Macque.

Fabrizio Fillimarino war Lautenist in Gesualdos Accademia, und die bittere Chromatik seines einleitenden Motivs verleiht dem Canzon Cromatica einen ausgesprochen neapolitanischen Klang. Dieses Werk ist einem Manuskript entnommen, das von dem Komponisten Luigi Rossi für seinen Lehrer Macque kopiert wurde.
