The son of a German nobleman, Kapsberger was born in Venice in 1580. Kapsberger’s work is incomparable in its originality, and particularly admirable in pieces for lute and for chitarone. For this recording, L’Arpeggiata has chosen Villanellas, an artistic imitation of traditional music covering a wide range of styles.
