A guest master class by Lucidarium.
Admission is free.
LUCIDARIUM is an ensemble specializing in medieval and Renaissance music. Each program is the fruit of a long period of research and preparation in various fields, resulting in a different sonority for each program: a vivacious combination of voices and instruments with the freedom in execution which comes from a solid knowledge of musical style and historical background. Although the research for the various projects is the responsibility of its two directors, the final product is developed collectively, the result of rehearsals where each musician is fully involved in the creative process. From its founding, this combination of meticulous preparation, joyful improvisation and energetic music-making has brought both popular and critical acclaim to the ensemble.
LUCIDARIUM’s work is currently divided between two projects: Ars Italica, which explores different aspects of Italy’s culture through its music and poetry, and Ars Hebraica, dedicated to the creative reconstruction of the soundscape of the Jews in Renaissance Europe.
Ensemble members collaborate regularly with important educational and scientific institutions, like the Universities of Arizona, California, Maryland and Wisconsin, the Centre de Musique Ancienne de Genève, the CERIMM of Royaumont, the Maîtrise de Paris, the Antwerps Universiteit and the Sorbonne, and the Compagnie Sandrine Anglade. Besides lectures, and workshops and master classes for young professionals, the group has developed various projects for school-age children: workshops, outreach concerts, and musical theater programs. LUCIDARIUM has won grants from Pro Helvetia, the European Association for European Culture, the Haddasah Brandeis and the Rothschild Foundations. In addition, the group works closely with Italian and Swiss consulates throughout the globe.
