a musical journey to the Middle Ages"

Sunday, 03 August 2014 at 8 p. m.
At Christ Church in Freiburg, Maienstr. 2, 79102 Freiburg
The Tamburi Mundi Festival is pleased with three high quality musicians who can be heard for the first time in Freiburg:
Arianna Savall (Barcelona), Petter Udland Johansen (Oslo) and David Mayoral (Madrid). Together with the ensemble Capella Antiqua Bambergensis they take the audience into times long past with music and songs. Exceptional compositions of the Middle Ages from Andalusia, Southern Italy, Germany, but also from Norway Give an impression of the sound diversity of the Middle Ages and testify a timeless melodic beauty of these songs. The concert features musical treasures, such as the mystical Marian songs from the "Red Book" Catalan "Libre Vermell" which Arianna Savall with her crystal clear voice and the sparkling sound of her harp interprets in a pleasant manner. She is accompanied by the Hardanger fiddle of the Norwegian musician Petter Udland Johansen, by the Spanish master percussionist David Mayoral and the Capella Antiqua Bambergensis on musical instruments of the Middle Ages. And if in some pieces, the frame drummers Murat Coşkun and Paolo Rossetti Murittu join in, former kings would have been forced to dance.
