Medieval music sounded remarkably modern and sophisticated in the hands of forward-thinking composers like Guillaume de Machaut, Jacob Senleches, and Johannes Suzoy. Writing in the 14th century, their music displayed unparalleled freedom of thought, fearlessly explored rhythmic complexity, and pushed the limits of what was possible to both notate and perform. An all-star cast of musicians unite for this fascinating – and mesmerizing – program that effortlessly combines expression with reason and purity with pleasure.
