Profeti della Quinta ((Italian): Prophets of the Perfect Fifth) is a male vocal ensemble, specializing in the music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Founded in the Galilee region of Israel by Elam Rotem, the ensemble is currently based in Basel-Switzerland, where its members undertook advanced studies at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. The core of the ensemble includes countertenor, tenor and bass singers, who perform either a-cappella or together with period instruments such as Theorbo and Harpsichord.
In his publications, Luzzasco Luzzaschi (c. 1545-1607) presents himself, rather modestly as the Organist of the Serene Highness Duke of Ferrara. Accordingly, Luzzaschis reputation today is similarly modest; he is known, if at all, thanks only to the music he composed for the Concerto delle Dame an ensemble of virtuoso female singers at the dEste court in Ferrara. And yet, when his entire oeuvre is explored, one discovers that his music and influence are greater than could have been imagined. In fact, Luzzaschi was both musically and historically one of the central musical figures of the late Renaissance. This recording presents a broad picture of Luzzaschis oeuvre, selecting works in various Genres, performed in historically informed settings with appropriate performance practices. While pieces for the Concerto delle Dame are included, one of the intentions of Profeti della Quinta is to highlight the fact that the rest of Luzzaschis output stands equally alongside these compositions.
