In the Press

Diapason, june 2003, Philippe Vendrix
“It’s high time the image of Leonardo da Vinci as a melancholy savant was revised: the painter really knew how to throw a party. This festive music makes you want to get up and dance, and Doulce Mémoire brings to life its marvellous effects with undeniable talent and graceful elegance. The disc features rich-sounding flutes, gossamer webs woven by the plucked string instruments, constant flexible phrasing and well-chosen tempi.”

Télérama, 28 may 2003, Gilles Macassar
“The singers and instrumentalists of Doulce Mémoire knowledgeably and patiently create a musical panorama. (…) Thanks to Doulce Mémoire, the listener gains insight into da Vinci through a bouquet of Roman madrigals, Milanese dances and melancholy French songs.”
