The Boston Camerata Mar. 6

March 5, 2015

The Boston Camerata is coming to MIT! On Friday, March 6th at 8 pm in Walker Memorial Building, come hear their performance Of all the Flowers: Song of the Middle Ages. In this specially commissioned program for MIT, you will hear music spanning the worlds of God and Man by the greatest composers of those ancient days: Machaut, Landini, da Bologna, and others. The constantly evolving and inventive musical minds of Italian and French masters during the fourteenth century has left us with repertoires, both sacred and secular, that successfully unite the search for new and different creative paths with astonishing lyricism and sensual beauty. Boston Camerata is collaborating with musicologist and programmer Michael Cuthbert, MIT Professor of Music, whose open-source software music21 allows scholars to find patterns and “fill in the gaps” among pieces of music from vast data sets. Their performances at MIT will include the first performances in over six hundred years of newly reconstructed works. Tickets are free for MIT students, faculty and staff, $10 for students, seniors, and alumni, and $20 for general admission. This event is made possible by the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST).
