A New Springtime of the World

October 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

- $31

Diabolus in Musica (FRANCE)

In the twelfth century, in the famous words of George Duby, “a new world blossomed on the old Latin stump.” This new world witnessed the composition by troubadours of the first secular songs on themes of courtly love. Musicians were joyfully reinventing beauty for a new age.

Diabolus in Musica present secular songs of the 12th Century: the music of the trouvères and troubadours.

The French ensemble, Diabolus in Musica, was founded in 1992. Under the new direction of Nicolas Sansarlat, they continue to present well-know repertoire and rediscovered vocal and instrumental works from the Middle Ages.

Diabolus in Musica go right to the heart of an exciting era of musical development when musicians were exploring the very essence of sound and the blending of sounds, rhythms and vocal timbres. – Gramophone
