FloReMus – CONVERSATION: Romain Bockler and Bor Zuljan/Cantar al liuto and improvisation during the Renaissance

Conversation with the members of the Duo Dulces Exuviae

Improvisation was inseparable from musical practice in the Renaissance. Driven by the ideas of the Florentine Marsilio Ficino, this practice influenced musical performance on different levels: from the improvisation of polyphony, to ornamentation and the practice of diminution. The lutenist, the lute was a favorite instrument of the Renaissance, shared these ideas, improvising polyphonic pieces and also reducing the polyphony on the solo instrument or accompanying the voice, as did the lyre of Orpheus.
