Onward into the Baroque

Aboslutley beautiful stuff from Rolf Lislevand (formerly of Jordi Savall's Hesperion XX). Read the associated article and then click on the "passacaglia cantata" link for some stunning musical interpretation of, I think, Frescobaldi. As a believer in historically informed performance, this would seem to go against my grain, but instead, it sends a shiver down my spine.

Also, check out Lislevand's Alfabeto.
