5° International Course of Medieval Music – The polyphonic music to the Aragonese Court of Naples – 28 / 07-02 / 08 2014





V° International Medieval Music Course


28 July / 2 August – 2014


“Poliphonic music in the 15th century Aragonese Naples Court”


Based on the quality and number of its musicians, the 15th century Aragonese court in Naples boasted the premiere musical ‘capella’ in Europe, even more important than that of the court of Burgundy. The composers Cornago and Vincenet worked there, while Tinctoris formulated all his theoretical works in Naples. At the court, all types of music known in Europe flourished: ballate, strambotti and barzellette from Italy; canciones from Spain, rondeaux and dances from France.


As MAIN SUBJECT, at the 5th International Course, we will explore the sonority and particular atmosphere of each of these genres and the fertile exchanges between formal and popular music that characterized Aragonese Naples.

For BEGINNERS, it will be possible to study free medieval repertory.
