Event description

Description

This performance is part of the San Francisco Early Music Society's BFX Berkeley Festival and Exhibition Fringe.

In the height of the Italian renaissance, Isabella d’Este the Marchesa of Mantua held court. She commissioned works from great artists of her day, and cultivated the careers of two renowned composers of the popular frottola song form: Marcetto Cara and Bartolomeo Tromboncino. The frottole of both of these composers are marked by strong rhythms, catchy melodies, and dramatic changes of tone from phrase to phrase.

The songs for this program are a snapshot of songs composed by Cara and Tromboncino based on new transcriptions from the 9 books of frottola published by Ottaviano Petrucci between the years 1504 and 1509.

Students $5 at the door.
