We are working on the program for the 2019 Festival. Updates will be posted soon!!!!
The 2nd edition (September 1-9, 2018) of FloReMus Festival will focus on the repertoire that was composed during the time of the transition from the Third Republic of Florence to the birth and development of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. The Festival will present the most representative compositions of that period, as “Tua est potentia”, a program dedicated to the Medici Codex, the music book that Pope Leo X (Giovanni de’Medici) commissioned for the wedding of his nephew, Lorenzo Duke of Urbino, with Madeleine de la Tour d’Auvergne, and the “Musics for the wedding of Cosimo de’Medici and Eleanor of Toledo”.
L’Homme Armé will perform side by side with some of the most esteemed European ensembles: Ensemble Janequin, who will celebrate in Florence the 40th anniversary of its activity, Ensemble Cinquecento, an ensemble of young European singers who will perform music connected to the Court of Habsburg, La Pifarescha, an ensemble that brings together some of the most talented players of wind instruments of the Renaissance period.
The Concerts will be enriched by lectures that aim to inform and educate the audience of music enthusiasts. Parallel to the Festival, an international course dedicated to the music of the same period will be held.
