AEM hosts the Texas Toot! – Madrigal Mystery Tour with Priscilla Herreid
November 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST$25
The madrigal was born in Italy, but from the start was popularized by Franco-Flemish and French composers living and working in Florence. The marriage of Italian poetry and form together with the excellent training and musical tradition of the oltremontani gave birth to this new and rapidly evolving musical form. We will go on a whirlwind tour of the madrigal, exploring its stylistic evolution from the more harmonically and rhythmically straightforward works of Festa and Verdelot to the more complex and chromatic later works of Willaert and Lassus, and, time willing, visit a few different countries on our way!
Open to: recorders and viols, alto down to bass (big basses welcome); singers also welcome! Pitch A=440.
