March 20 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
‘Or su, gentili spiriti’ Italian virtuoso music (ca. 1350-1420)
A concert of one of the most exciting ensembles of medieval music today.
In a world premiere, TASTO SOLO brings to the beautiful Chapel of Magdalen College a superb pogramme of Italian Trecento composers, including Francesco Landini, Jacopo da Bologna, and Lorenzo da Firenze, as well as virtuoso music for early keyboard from the famous Codex Faenza.
Barbara Zanichelli, voice
David Catalunya, hammered clavisimbalum
Pau Marcos, fiddle
Guillermo Perez, organetto & artistic direction
TASTO SOLO rediscovers virtuoso and highly refined repertoires from the late Medieval and early Renaissance periods. Directed by the organetto player Guillermo Pérez, the ensemble approaches Early Music with exquisite performances by combining historical research, creativity and the art of transmitting emotions. Each concert is a unique event; the group pays full attention to every detail, including staging, dramatic rhythm, improvisation and dialogue between the artists. Contemporary audiences, whether connoisseur or inexperienced, are seduced from the very first note, overwhelmed by the sensuality and unusual sonorities that make up Tasto Solo’s particular identity.
