1607 Records

label for early & new music

“The interpretations set out to make up for the differences in eras, to make all the arias sound radiant and vigorous, regardless of their period of origin.

Quality of recording, as well as subtlety of interpretation make Maria Weiss’ album one of the most beautiful new releases of early music this year. Our congratulations!”

Deepest THANKS to our sponsors, donators, cooperators:

“But, above all, the mezzosoprano voice of Maria Weiss
