This program juxtaposes Renaissance masters such as Jacob Obrecht and Josquin des Prez with pop songs; English fantasias-the bread and butter of consort music-with Shostakovich’s jazz-inspired works; and Bach’s Art of the Fugue with an Astor Piazzolla tango. It sketches how imitative polyphony evolved from its more free beginnings into the rigor of a fugue, and how that form continued to inspire composers writing for “new” instruments such as the harmonium and the bandoneon. Quaver guarantees to open your ear holes!
