CD release

Gesualdo: Madrigali

September 2019
We’re delighted to announce the release of our long-awaited disc of Gesualdo madrigals on Winter & Winter.

‘A stunner…a superb new disc. [EXAUDI] sing with impeccable definition and accuracy, letting each dissonance burn and scorch until the ear longs for release.’ Fiona Maddocks, The Observer


This recording presents fresh readings of 18 of Gesualdo’s madrigals from Books V and VI. The music of these two books exert a strange and enduring fascination on the modern musical imagination: listening today to these extraordinary messages of anguish and ecstasy, we are drawn back to his flame like lovers who can’t let go, into the warp of chromatic harmony, the emotional hyper-intensity and mysterious otherness of this most tantalising early Baroque figure.

We are extremely grateful to the 148 kind supporters who donated to this recording via our Kickstarter campaign.
