Consonarte – Vox in Musica,
a new publishing enterprise, seeks to renew appreciation for the Italian vocal chamber
repertoire: a vast – often disregarded, even forgotten – musical patrimony that
constitutes a splendid legacy of Italian musical history, and one not to be overlooked.
Entire cycles of Arias, Romanze, Melodies, Nocturnes, Ballads, Elegies, Madrigals, Short
Poems for voice and pianoforte, as well as Cantatas (with pianoforte or small groups of
instruments) are almost completely unknown to today’s performers: Consonarte aims to give
them a new editorial dressing, which highlights their great value and
encourages their rightful return to concert halls.
