Folger Consort: Music for Machiavelli
September 29 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
$42, with discounts available
Folger Consort begins its season of Italian early music with works from Florence, circa 1500. Perhaps best known as the author of The Prince, Niccolò Machiavelli walked the streets of Florence 500 years ago. He was a true Renaissance man–a philosopher, playwright, diplomat, and a composer. Along with the carnival songs Machiavelli wrote for the Medici family and music for his two comedic stage plays, Folger Consort performs works by Francesco Bendusi, Josquin des Prez, Heinrich Isaac, and native composers of Northern Italy. With instrumentalists Larry Lipnik, Dan Meyers, Mark Rimple, and Mary Springfels, and soprano Emily Noël.
