I GEMELLI

Emiliano Gonzalez Toro

For more than fifteen years now, Emiliano Gonzalez Toro has sung the music of the Seicento – and Monteverdi in particular – with the leading specialists of the period, including Ensemble Elyma, Cappella Mediterranea, Les Talens Lyriques, Accademia Bizantina, Les Arts Florissants and Les Musiciens du Louvre. He has appeared in the world’s most famous opera houses.

In 2018 he founded his own ensemble, surrounded by colleagues handpicked for this repertory which he is especially close to his heart: I Gemelli, a formation specialising in seventeenth-century vocal music. The ensemble’s mission is to champion the great masterpieces of the Seicento and to reveal other, still unpublished scores from the same period.

The performing forces of I Gemelli vary according to the specific requirements of each work, with a constant concern to reproduce its style and rhetoric as faithfully as possible, in a wide range of sound colours. Each repertory is approached from the twin perspectives of its unique qualities and the context of its time. I Gemelli plays on period instruments in historically informed performance style, and collaborates closely with scholars and musicologists in the elaboration of each programme. The guest artists come from the rising generation of singers and instrumentalists, or are well-established or indeed key personalities on the international scene.

This is the ensemble’s first recording.
