The French (Italian) Connection – Online Premiere

March 29 @ 12:00 am - 11:30 pm EDT


At the turn of the 16th century, King Charles VIII of France and the lords of the great Italian city-states vied for military and cultural dominance. Music and ideas flowed across borders and a groundbreaking Italian printer captured it all on paper, beginning with the “Gutenberg Bible of music,” the Harmonice Musices Odhecaton. Piffaro, the Renaissance Band and GRAMMY award-winning tenor James Reese bring to life the clash of arms, the sublime songs, the courtly dances, and one of the most beautiful elegies for a musical master ever written, Josquin des Prez’s “Nymphes des bois”.

“I loved the DEEP HUMANITY of a concert which emerges from our historic roots…You are a great gift!” –Susan B.
