Salterio italiano is coming!
IL DOLCE CONFORTO releases its new CD in June 2018! On this CD, original Italian salterio music was recorded for the first time on an original instrument using both playing techniques in equal measure, moreover while played upon using the first faithful replicas of Italian salterio mallets worldwide. Support us by pre-ordering a CD!
I am looking forward to give a solo concert in this festival, playing in the wonderful Spiegelsaal of the Residenz Eichstätt. The perfect place for my salterio, I would say! Lukas Henning will support me – watch the introducing video to get an idea
Lamentazione by Domenico Merola
This wonderful composition by Domenico Merola ( died 1771) – released on our first CD “Sacred Salterio” – was lately published also on Youtube. Within one week it reached already so many listeners & likers and we’re very relieved to finally revive his beautiful music! As happened to many other good composers of that time, Merola is unknown today, as most of his music is lost.
