Tinctoris: Secret Consolations / Romain, Le Miroir de Musique
If Johannes Tinctoris (1435-1511) is today widely recognized as one of the most renowned music theorists of his time, he was also a perceptive observer of the musical practices of the Renaissance. After studying in Orleans, he held several positions in Cambrai, Liege and finally Naples. Here his gifts as a composer could flourish at the court of King Ferrante of Aragon as a chaplain, legal advisor and music tutor of Ferrante's daughter Beatrice. This programme retraces his career through his extremely varied output: French and Italian songs, Mass movements, and instrumental pieces.
