On March 29th, SalonEra illuminates the lives and works of two Medieval visionaries: Christine de Pizan and Guillaume de Machaut. The greatest poet-musician of the 14th century, Machaut was a trailblazer across multiple forms and genres. Pizan challenged misogyny in her writing, envisioning a feminist utopia in her famous book The City of Ladies, and championing equal rights for women. Multi-instrumentalist Scott Metcalfe, director of acclaimed vocal ensemble Blue Heron joins Medieval organetto virtuoso Catalina Vicens for music by Machaut, Binchois, Dufay, and others.
