“Lunarcy” on EPR Classic

According to René Jacobs, Lawrence Zazzo is the most versatile operatic countertenor of his generation. On his first Evil Penguin recording, however, he explores the intimacy of the lute song in a remarkable programme focusing on madness and midnight. Teaming up with lute virtuoso Shizuku Noiri, Zazzo samples some of the genre highlights by Dowland and Purcell but also concentrates on contemporary repertoire for countertenor. The result is a fascinating exploration of the dark and the light of the moon and the mind.

"This recording of amorous duets is as delicate and intoxicating as orange blossom. Nuria Rial's tender soprano blends beautifully with Lawrence Zazzo's bright, heroic counter tenor in duets from 'Poro, Serse, Admeto, Arminio, Teseo' and 'Muzio Scevola'" The London Independent
