In Stile Moderno: Virtuoso Performances of the Sixteenth Century

February 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In Stile Moderno presents “Dilettare e muovere:  Virtuoso Performances of the Sixteenth Century.” The most brilliant performers of the Renaissance were renowned for their effortless and virtuosic ornamentation, and their ability to improvise new works on existing themes. The music they created, based on vocal polyphony, popular tunes, and dance music, remains a great unwritten repertoire, ripe for rediscovery. We continue this practice with our own adaptations of sixteenth-century music, for cornetto, voice, and harpsichord—using old methods to create something new and modern.

Performers will include Nathaniel Cox, cornetto; Agnes Coakley Cox, soprano; John McKean, harpsichord.
