Concert of Medaeval & Resnaissance music (Olsen/SCB)
This captivating program explores the rich beginnings of song and polyphony in Europe: from the splendid chants of the Notre Dame in Paris or Las Huelgas monestary in Spain to the evolving songs and poetry of the Troubadours in France. Although the iconic organetto (medieval portative organ), was the most popular instrument across Europe for hundreds of years, it disappeared in the beginning of the 16th century, perhaps unable to advance in range and volume as other instruments of the time, but what was lost was precious: the organetto is a deeply expressive and subtle instrument with a uniquely beautiful timbre. Soprano Anne-Kathryn Olsen and celebrated organetto virtuoso Guillermo Pérez create a historical soundscape reawakening the organetto in the context of this vibrant time in our musical past.
