Description
An uncommonly productive composer of sacred music and operas, Francesco Gasparini (1661–1727) numbered Domenico Scarlatti and Johann Joachim Quantz among his students. Led by theorbist Yasunori Imamura, Fons Musicae consists of soprano Monique Zanetti, countertenor Pascal Bertin, and a small string section, and here they survey the career of one of the best-known musicians of his era, performing three gorgeous cantatas, Sapessi almen perche, Chi non sa che sia morire, and Dimmi gentil Daliso.

"I found it a delightful and pleasant evening listening to this CD. I'm sure, though, that the high quality of the performances here had much to do with that. Fons Musicæ, founded in 1997 by lutenist-theorboist Yasunori Imamura, is certainly one of those HIP [historically informed performance] groups that knows their oats. They understand that this music was meant to be enjoyed, that it requires life and lift, and they perform it in that manner…. I was absolutely captivated by soprano Monique Zanetti. What a simply wonderful artist she is! There is not a phrase, not a note, which she does not sing with color and feeling and a sense of total involvement. Yet Fons Musicæ can captivate even without her very valuable services; the instrumental Sonata that is the centerpiece of this disc is simply enchanting."—Fanfare

"Zanetti and Pascal Bertin are entirely at home in the Baroque idiom; vocally, they are everything one could wish for."—Fono Forum
