Ecco la Primavera



2011




Ecco la Primavera

14th- and 15th-Century Music from Italy

In the Folger Elizabethan Theater

March 11-13, 2011

 

Italian music blossomed in the early Renaissance, featuring beautiful flowing melodies which helped shape the beginnings of a new style. To welcome spring, Folger Consort performs music from Italian manuscripts by Landini, Hugo and Arnold de Lantins, Ciconia, and Du Fay. All of the music in this program was composed within about a 70-year span, between about 1370 and 1440, and the variety of sonority, harmonic language, and rhythmic texture is stunning.
