“A brilliant ensemble.”
The Early Music Review (London)
Imagine a world where glorious melodies, amazing rhythms and electrifying improvisations blend into a musical experience that defies the boundaries of ʻpopʼ or ʻclassicalʼ.
The Glory of the Renaissance comes alive in the sparkling performances of Renaissonics. Internationally acclaimed for their artistry, virtuosity and improvisations,
Renaissonics performs Chamber Music, Dance Music and Improvisations in programs that delight all audiences.
Their newest program “SUCH STUFF AS DREAMS” is an enchanting voyage though the Renaissance imagination where the fantasies and genius of the age
of Leonardo, Galileo and Shakespeare come alive through their music.
Renaissance musicʼs expressive freedom derives partly from the musicʼs being written completely without barlines. This allows each player to ʻspeakʼ their
instrument like a storyteller. A true musical democracy where each voice is equal and free to tell their own individual story all the while intertwining with the other
voices in a lush tapestry of sounds that are at once endlessly complex and stunningly beautiful. Renaissonics performs on handcrafted Renaissance violin and ʻcello, recorders (up to 6 feet tall!), crumhorns, pipe and tabor and harpsichord.
