IL TRANSILVANO

Music for a 16th-century Hungarian court

In 1541 the Ottoman army besieged and conquered the city of Buda. The Hungarian royal family fled to Transylvania, where the court was safe from attack but cut off from other European cultural centres. Music formed an important bridge to the outside world: while the Italian organist Girolamo Diruta dedicated his 1593 collection Il Transilvano to the Prince of Transylvania, the rustic sounds of Hungarian and Romanian music made a strong impression on Italian composers. Here Prisma presents such pieces in the context of the styles they have learned from local traditional musicians still active in Hungary, Transylvania and Romania.
