Traveling to 16th Century Rome with Palestrina
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM Pacific
Event Type(s)
Event Description
UBC early music scholar Alex Fisher will focus this workshop on a famed composer whose 500th anniversary is rapidly approaching, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (c. 1525-1594). Vocal music like Palestrina’s beautiful Masses and motets were “fair game” for instrumentalists in the sixteenth century and their texts also help us to understand principles of phrasing and articulation. Time permitting, we may also explore music of Palestrina’s Roman contemporaries, such as Tomás Luis de Victoria (c. 1548-1611) or Giovanni Animuccia (d. 1571).
