ORLANDO CONSORT:  LOIRE VALLEY IN SONG

$30-$45 BUY SINGLE TICKETS

The Laborde Chansonnier is one of the finest surviving French song collection manuscripts, containing over a hundred songs by Binchois, Busnois, Dufay, Ockeghem and other 15th century masters. Set with stunning illuminations and constructed with supreme skill, the Chansonnier—or songbook—was clearly produced for royal hands, eyes, and ears. The Orlando Consort sings a montage of the Chansonnier’s most striking selections, complementing the pictorial magic of this magnificent Renaissance artifact.

Tallis Scholars: Heinrich Isaac at 500

$40-$55 Buy Single Tickets

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Netherlandish Renaissance composer Heinrich Isaac, whose career spanned the European continent and encompassed both sacred and secular genres. Though less widely known today than his contemporary Josquin des Prez, his work has nonetheless been massively influential. The Tallis Scholars return to Miller to celebrate the legacy of this prolific composer, performing several of Isaac’s motets alongside selections from Josquin, John Browne, and Nicolas Gombert.

NEW YORK POLYPHONY:  TALLIS LAMENTATIONS

$30-$45 Buy Single Tickets
$128-$188 Buy Series Tickets

Thomas Tallis’s setting of the Lamentations of the prophet Jeremiah is undeniably one of the most revered works of the Renaissance canon. While 16th century Roman Catholics like Tallis primarily associated this text, which describes the aftermath of the destruction of Jerusalem, with Holy Thursday, Tallis’s beautiful arrangement of the verses transcends liturgical use. Performed by the superb singers of New York Polyphony, this story of finding faith in times of despair proves as relevant today as it has throughout millennia.

October 21, 2016 at 7:30 PM

“Why has light been given to the weary of soul, and life to the troubled hearts?” Such timeless existential questions, raised here by Brahms, are at the heart of this evening of sacred choral works. The “superb” Rundfunkchor Berlin (Guardian, U.K.) performs under its new director, Gijs Leenaars, in a program where glorious choral works by Bach, Brahms, Schütz, and Schoenberg dissolve into the final haze of Knut Nystedt’s haunting meditation, Immortal Bach.

OUTLIERS 
Admission $10-$30

Experimentation is the life blood of art. New modes of artistic expression challenge our assumptions and offer a renewed understanding of our increasingly complex world. No time period or place reflects these pursuits better than Renaissance Italy. From the 1300s through the 1600s, composers like Francesco Landini, Gesualdo, and Monteverdi pushed the boundaries of musical expression, balancing risk with artistry. This creative spirit continues in Italy today through 20th c. avant-garde composers like Giacinto Scelsi and Salvatore Sciarrino. Join Trident as we explore this great Italian heritage of artistic ingenuity with a concert of Italian Outliers.
