ELINOR FREY AND SUZIE LEBLANC
FIORÈ: CELLO AND ENCHANTED VOICES
FIORÈ centres on a collection of cello music that was recently discovered in a small archive in Italy. The brilliant and lyrical sonatas were likely composed by Milanese cellist Angelo Maria Fiorè, while the arias were written by Ballarotti, Ziani, Gabrielli, Bononcini, and Magni. The expressive cello lines and beautiful sung texts weave a tapestry of longing, torment, sorrow, and idealized love. The program draws upon the passion for research and commitment to exploration of Elinor Frey and Suzie LeBlanc.
Elinor Frey, cello; Suzie LeBlanc, soprano; Esteban La Rotta, theorbo; Luc Beauséjour, guest harpsichordist
