Spanning three centuries (c.1400-c.1650), the Franco-Flemish school is a major musical movement divided into five or six generations, and represents a variety of stylistic differences. The exchanges of ideas, favored by increased travel throughout Europe and the invention of musical printing advanced musical theory and dissemination of composers’ works. The result is a melodic and harmonic symbiosis specific to Franco-Flemish polyphony. In this concert, the theme of the rose serves as a common thread throughout the programme. In addition to celebrating the love between two beings, the rose also symbolizes the Virgin Mary.
With harpist Sara Lackie.
