In the Renaissance, 10-year-old choirboys could make up music on the spot, music that sounded like real compositions! How did they do that? Musicologist- conductor Peter Schubert has researched the question and has trained members of VivaVoce to produce expert counterpoint on tunes made up by you, the audience. The program includes pieces by Josquin, Jacquet, Palestrina and Praetorius that show their improvisatory origins. (A collaboration with the Fondazione Giorgio Cini of Venice)
Strange things started happening around 1900... The familiar melodies and chords of Romantic music were transformed into unsettling soundscapes, frightening but mysteriously attractive. Take the thrilling voyage from Brahms to Schoenberg, through Bax and Morawetz, ending up with a new work written for VivaVoce by Nicolas Gilbert.
