“music and magic”
“Music embellishes the places where it is heard” Julien Green
Discovering splendor of renaissance music
Splendor of renaissance’s painting and architecture are universally recognized, but its music remains mysterious. Why the notes which resounded in sixtin chapel would be less beautiful than the frescos on its walls?
We will explore the vocal repertoire (madrigals, motets, songs), and the instrumental music (dances and “canzoni”) of this awesome period.
Each day will include a musicologic introduction, and a practicing part for both singers and instrumentalists. Scores will be given before each meeting.
