Miserere – the Italian sound through the centuries
The future of tradition
A sophisticated crossover project that has its roots in the noblest Italian musical heritage, in which the art of improvisation typical of the jazz language is combined with the stylistic features of the past.
A millennium of masterpieces drawn from the ancient Gregorian antiphonaries and from medieval laudariums, from the Renaissance counterpoint of the Roman and Venetian schools to melodrama; a journey through time and in the Italian sound entirely interpreted by artists who have distinguished themselves for their ability to renew tradition.
Unpublished arrangements, specially prepared by Maestro Mario Corvini to enhance both the refined phrasing of Rosario Giuliani and the enveloping research timbres of the MAC Saxophone Quartet, one of the most appreciated quartets for their work of protection and innovation of the Italian school.
