Invention and Imagination
Venice, 1501 – and for the new century, new technology in the guise of Petrucci’s Odhecaton, the first songbook to be printed from movable type. Suddenly music by great composers of the time such as Josquin, Isaac and Agricola was available in a form that made ideal material for another significant invention of the years around 1500: the consort of viols. YEMF regulars the Rose Consort presents songs and instrumental music from Petrucci’s ground-breaking prints, using a special set of viols based on a painting of 1497.
‘beguiling: the Rose Consort is rightly well established as one of the world’s premiere ensembles of its type.’ Fanfare
