Iberian Sounds, Troubadour Traditions Concert

Date
Sunday, February 27, 2011
Time
01:00 PM–02:00 PM

La Chanson de la Rose, the Baltimore-based duo comprised of Nola Richardson( soprano, playing the rebec and lute) and Brain Kay (lutenist, percussionist and tenor) will perform a series of secular songs, inspired by the troubadour tradition and Medieval melodies.

This performance of medieval music will feature Troubadour ballads with themes of courtly love and chivalry. The program includes Guillaume de Machaut's secular virelais, ballads by Phillippe de Vitry, and several Cantigas de Amigo, featuring a female-based perspective on Medieval love.

Performers Nola Richardson and Brian Kay comprise the musical duo, La Chanson de la Rose. They maintain a strong commitment to the music of the Medieval, Baroque and Renaissance periods, which they hope to make accessible to today’s listeners. Their dynamic collaboration and passion for the music they play has brought them recent attention: La Chanson de la Rose has given several Peabody concerts and been featured with the Peabody Renaissance Ensemble, under director Mark Cudek.
