In the 16th and 17th centuries, the cornetto was fabled for its astonishing ability to imitate the human voice. This imitation encompassed not only its clear and bright sound, but also its agility, and expressive range, which could make it sound almost as though the player were speaking through his instrument.
The young soprano, Hana Blažíková, described as “one of the most exciting voices in the baroque scene today” joins Bruce Dickey and an all-star cast of instrumentalists.
“The plangent eloquence and dare-devil bravura of Bruce Dickey’s cornetto playing would charm the skin off a snake.” – BBC Music Magazine
