“THE MUSIC OF NICCOLÒ PERUGIA”

Ballads, Madrigals and Caccie of love of a Perugian in Florence in the Fourteenth Century.
Discovering the music of Magister Ser Nicholaus Preposito de Perugia, a Perugian composer active, above all, in Florence in the second half of the Fourteenth Century. His production of works, which often set to music texts by poets such as Florentine Soldanieri and Sacchetti is conserved in 21 ballads, 16 madrigals and 4 caccie, and gives us a comprehensive picture of the Fourteenth Century music demonstrating how the Italian Ars Nova alternates high and low period style, with music for the court and music in “bourgeois taste”.

 

MEDIEVAL LUTE 

The course aims to provide elements for recostructing the performing practice for plectrum instruments in the vocal and instrumental repertoires of the Fourteenth Century.

The teaching will include technical elements, posture, use of plectrum figures for the articulation of musical phrases, rhythmic and melodic use of drones in monody, ornamentation techniques, exercises for the conscious and functional use ornaments, counterpoint, elements of notation, modal theory, elements of medieval iconography and organology.

The exact repertory will be communicated to students in advance, however the students can propose any medieval repertoire of personal interest.
