Josquin & Isaac


viol da gamba, played by Folger Consort Artistic Director, Robert Eisenstein

Josquin & Isaac
Master of the Notes
October 7 - 9, 2005

Josquin--whose ravishingly expressive works were universally admired for their sublime beauty--was unquestionably the greatest composer of his age. Yet, Isaac--who astonishing versatility produced songs in every language, lively instrumental pieces, and masterpieces of Flemish contrapuntal art--was not far behind. In the season's opening concert, the Consort performs motets, songs, and carmina by both Renaissance masters.
