While Robert Craft is primarily remembered as a champion of Igor Stravinsky. Edgard Varèse, and the Second Viennese School, he was also profoundly interested in renaissance- baroque-era polyphony, particularly the music of Carlo Gesualdo. Craft's first pioneering recording of the Italian master's madrigals, made before his long-term partnership with Columbia Masterworks, was made with a handful of Hollywood's most gifted singers - including the young Marilyn Horne. The result of these independent studio sessions was an important catalyst in the revival of interest in Gesualdo's unique and revolutionary oeuvre, and a landmark recording at the dawn of "historically informed" early music performance practice. Unavailable for over six decades, this recording has been restored and remastered by urlicht AudioVisual.
