Brother and sister Marc Mauillon and Angélique Mauillon present Li Due Orfei.

The music featured on this album is primarily by Giulio Caccini and Jacopo Peri, known for their respective versions of Euridice, the oldest surviving opera scores, and both considered an “Orpheus” of their time. The two virtuosic singer-composers lived in Florence in the early 1600s and were rivals in every sense, both striving to rediscover the Greek tragedy.

The works on this album were meant to be sung with the simple accompaniment of a plucked instrument, in order to express the full range of human passions. The composers would sometimes accompany themselves, but would frequently perform with family members, making the brother-sister team performing here a natural fit.
