The Viennese School: Music from the Court of Maximilian I

In March, Folger Consort traces the origins of Vienna’s musical legacy with music from the earliest “Viennese School” – the assembly of composers Paul Hofhaimer, Heinrich Isaac, and Ludwig Senfl at the court of Emperor Maximilian I around the year 1500. These later Viennese works are performed in new arrangements for the Consort’s early instruments by composer David Froom, and the concert will also include the world premiere of Froom’s setting of “Lament of the City” by the poet Sue Standing.

The Roman de Fauvel: Politics and Counterpoint in Medieval France

Apr 22-24, 2022

$20-$50

In 14th-century Paris, Fauvel is a mythical horse embodying all of man’s vices. He experiences a meteoric rise to political infamy in the French royal court where he is visited far and wide by clergy and noblemen who debase themselves to clean and brush him – or “curry favor,” a phrase originating from Fauvel’s story. In these performances, the eccentric Medieval music of the Roman de Fauvel is paired with the world premiere of new settings by composer Juri Seo.
