Firenze circa 1350: music during the flowering of Humanism

 

It is said that on a warm morning in 1389, at the Florentine garden known as “Il Paradiso”, Francesco Landini, famed for his virtuosity, accepted the challenge to silence the birds with the beauty of his organ-playing. This blind composer and multi-instrumentalist was known in the city not only for his musical skills but also for his rhetorical abilities and philosophical views. A perfect representative of the incipient humanism, Landini, together with fellow composers such as Paolo da Firenze, Andrea Stefani and Giovanni da Cascia, was to bring the music of her time to a peak.

Sollazzo Ensemble. Sollazzo Ensemble was founded in 2014 in Basel and brings together musicians with a strong interest in late medieval and early Renaissance repertoires. The ensemble is directed by fiddle player Anna Danilevskaia and benefits from the different musical backgrounds of its members: while some of them come from Early Music families, others have found their calling via modern classical music, theatre or even musical. The members of Sollazzo have profited from studies in institutions renowned for their specialisation in Early Music such as the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, the ESMUC in Barcelona and the CNSM in Lyon.
