Landini & Machaut


Trefoil, vocalists and instrumentalists Drew Minter, Mark Rimple, and Marcia Young

Landini & Machaut
Master of the Notes
March 31 - April 2, 2006

Francesco Landini (c.1325-1397) and Guillaume de Machaut (c.1300-1377) stand at the pinnacle of the new art of the 14th century in their respective lands. Landini, the blind singer and organist of Florence, left a legacy of sweet and flowing ballatas and madrigals. Machaut, the last of the trouveres and the first of the great composers of part songs in France, was a great poet as well as musician. In the intimate Elizabethan Theatre, the Consort presents exquisite songs by both 14th-century masters as well as exciting virtuoso instrumental music of the time.
