Pegasus Early Music presents The Panther and The Rose

Pegasus Early Music presents a concert of medieval Italian music from the 14th century, with voices, lute, harp, vielle, bagpipes, and more. Quirky, virtuosic, and expressive, this music challenges the ears with its rhythmic complexity at the same time that it soothes and amazes the heart with its melodic elegance and beauty. Our program includes motets, dances, ballatas, and madrigals by Johannes Ciconia, who wrote in both French and Italian styles; Francesco Landini, the organist known as ‘Francesco the Blind’; Donato da Firenze, and others. With Andrew Rader, countertenor; Jonas Budris, tenor; Dongmyung Ahn, vielle; Christa Patton, harp, recorder, shawm, bagpipes; Deborah Fox, lute. Pre-concert talk at 3:15pm.
