Playing With Fire

A Best Seller!

In this recording of instrumental music of the Renaissance, the Folger Consort performs fiery improvisations on the popular tunes of the 1500s, dance music of Italy and France, and masterpieces of contrapuntal complexity. Hear a wide variety of instrumental colors from the distinctive timbres of Renaissance reeds and fiddles to the sweet blending of recorders and viols.

Compact disc and cassette, Bard 9510, 1995. 


Jacques Moderne Bransle
