Beyond these shores: A York Tapestry
Exploring stories contained in stained glass and manuscripts, reading tales of travelling merchants and musicians, and inspired by beautiful architecture and heritage, The Gesualdo Six present a musical tapestry inspired by the great city of York, celebrating cross-currents in an era of collaboration and discovery. The programmes contextualise some of the ‘jewels in the crown’ of renaissance repertoire by tracing themes of pedagogy and patronage around Europe, featuring works by Binchois, Ockeghem, Josquin, Dunstaple and Byrd.
“Ingeniously programmed and impeccably delivered, with that undefinable excitement that comes from a group of musicians working absolutely as one.” Gramophone
