Books, articles, and a blog by the music critic of The New Yorker
At another church in Gesualdo, the Chiesa dell'Addolorata, Domenico Sodano performed the first of Gesualdo's pieces for the anthology Salmi delle compiete. Sodano gave me a copy of his excellent recording Alla corte di Gesualdo, containing vocal and instrumental pieces by Gesualdo and various other composers of his era, including his associate Pomponio Nenna and the mid-sixteenth-century Neapolitan musician and poet Massimo Troiano. The latter was included, I suspect, because he was accused of murdering a fellow musician in Munich, in 1570, and fled the city, never to be heard from again.
