Recording date: February 1998 (Beaufays)

This is a rather unique recital featuring Italian Ars Nova music played on organetto (or portative organ). This instrument flourished at this time, especially as played by Landini. The liner notes are especially interesting in terms of detailing the role & development of the instrument. The performance features improvisatory elements and phrasing in the general style of Mala Punica, sometimes with a rather complex drum accompaniment.

The present recording comes in a compact deluxe packaging, and is evidently the beginning of a new series of recordings devoted to specific instruments on Ricercar.
