The Swiss-Israeli vocal ensemble Profeti della Quinta proves that audiences can still be thrilled by late-renaissance Italian madrigals. All the works – or almost all – deal with love. Five singers trained at Basle's Schola Cantorum form the core of this ensemble of 'prophets'. Their starting point is the performance practice of the unimaginably vibrant and expressive era around 1600. A lot was going on in secular vocal music at the time: composers set the demanding lyrical poetry of Petrarch and Tasso and constantly vied with each other to produce ever bolder musical audacities.
