WHY COR DONATO EDITIONS?
One of Barbara Strozzi's lovely Opus 3 works is Cor Donato, cor rubato ... a heart given and a heart stolen.
I love the gesture of a heart and love given freely.
What is the logo?
The central heart is surrounded by the Strozzi family crest of three crescents. This particular version of the stemma is used as decor throughout the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, and our logo comes from a photograph I took of an iron gate detail at the Palazzo. The heart is added to the graphic where the original keyhole would be -- a key to the heart of Strozzi's music.
It is interesting to note that the Opus 2 frontispiece includes a smallversion of this same original crest!
