Early Music of Germany

October 12 – 14, 2018
Folger Theatre

Autumn brings a flavorful array of festive music from the German-speaking lands, featuring colorful songs by 14th-century Tyrolean knight, adventurer, poet, and musician Oswald von Wolkenstein, along with quirky instrumental pieces from the 15th-century Glogauer Liederbuch. Later music by Heinrich Isaac and Ludwig Senfl reflects the opulent court of the Emperor Maximilian I in early 16th-century Vienna. With strings, winds, and tenor Mark Bleeke.
