Editor’s Note
Sferraina is an old word...
It’s the name of a work by Giovanni Girolamo Kapsperger. Exactly what it means is difficult to say. It might refer to a contemporary copper plate engraving showing a singer, a lutenist and a percussionist. Just as di cult to clarify is the question of how early music, such as that of Kapsperger, should be properly interpreted. How it should be played to make it relevant to modern times, to make it mean something. These are the kinds of questions explored by the young musicians of Sferraina. They have studied with excellent teachers, played with the stars of the early music scene, and kept their own fresh perspectives. Monkeyfish is their astonishing debut album. Musical pieces from early baroque instrumentalists and singer-songwriters, their own compositions and anonymous manuscripts from the famed library of the Dukes of Este create an enchanting sound space, where music from past eras continually overlaps and interacts with the present. So why is it called Monkeyfish, then? That’s a very good question.
