Roland de Lassus - Biographie musicale vol. II


Roland de Lassus Our latest release, which was recorded as volume II in the series Biographie musicale: Orlando di Lasso for the label Musique en Wallonie, demonstrates Lasso’s productivity during his fruitful years at the flourishing court of Albrecht V. Sacred and secular compositions (motets, songs, chansons, madrigals) in different languages are juxtaposed on this CD, giving evidence of Lasso’s genius to set musical milestones in every genre. Not without reason would he soon after be titled the New Orpheus.
