The Playfords have ventured into the field of pop music in their latest CD – albeit pop music from several centuries ago. During the Renaissance, Italy was seen as the land of desire by numerous northern European countries: this led to the incorporation of rhythmic and harmonic models in new works, even in distant England, which were then termed as “Italian grounds”. In the country of origin, there was an abundance of dance rhythms and song melodies which were repeatedly utilised to produce an ever-growing collection of variations. The ciaccona for example was a popular entertainment which triggered off waves of intense euphoria.
At that time, music-making always also entailed a degree of improvisation and this is what lent the music of this period its fascinating rich colouring and broad spectrum. The Playfords have become infected by this fascination and present this collection of (primarily) Italian joie de vivre with their customary high spirits and technical perfection.
