Read the Program Notes:

“Refined and considered....with a passionate spirituality” – that’s how the Philadelphia Inquirer describes the musical world of Bruno Bettinelli – youthful and romantic, yet written in the composer’s eighties, these madrigals navigate all emotions and speak to all listeners. To balance, we introduce Salvatore Sciarrino’s music, which combines the expressionistic influence of Berio with modern minimalism.

And to conclude, the insightful words of revered Italian poets Michelangelo and Leopardi are heard in settings by Stephen Paulus and Yehuda Yannay respectively.
