The splendor and cultural heritage of the historical period known as Humanism, capable of spanning the entire fifteenth century up to the early sixteenth century, contains a complex network of intuitions and “revolutions”, – often regional or developed in geographically and politically well delimited, of “culture” and its representation in society, a theatricalization of reality without limits, where every gesture, symbol, behavior, fully embraced the greatness and beauty of the Courts and their main “actors”.
The Anonima Frottolisti ensemble proposes an ideal musical representation of an imaginary court of Italian Humanism. Music from printed works of the very early sixteenth century and from late fifteenth century manuscripts; compositions characterized by the splendid development of writing for lute and by the “speculative” aesthetics of the polyphonic and contrapuntal compositions of the time. The concert includes five main moments: Incipit, Fortuna, Sacred Love and Profane Love, the Journey, the Return, typical conditions of the theatrical, literal culture and of the oral tradition of representation in European Humanism, the very foundations of the birth of the Commedia dell’Arte and of the first forms of “Opera”. The program develops through the compositional forms characteristic of Humanism: the frottola, the dances, the chansons, the villotte, and the typical forms of devotional contrafacta composed on secular music. A musical journey that tells about the pleasure and the pursuit of court taste and entertainment, at the turn of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
