Kultur is proud to announce the release of Renaissance Voices: Interpreted by Paul Van Nevel available on DVD on February 28, 2012.
Paul Van Nevel shares the melancholia and earthy tastes of the Renaissance and has been performing the music of the period for many years. He combs libraries for forgotten compositions and insists on reading the original scores, finding nuances which guide his interpretations. But he is also insatiably curious about the concrete realities of Renaissance life.
In this informative and entertaining program Van Nevel takes us back to a world in which time moved more slowly, although lives were shorter, and the dead kept watch over the living, where dreams held sway and children saw mountains and marvels wherever they looked, when the age of exploration was still dawning and the "landscape" still taking shape.
When Van Nevel contemplates the Franco-Flemish landscapes into which all the great contrapuntists were born, he sees their compositions reflected. Through him the hills and valleys suddenly start to sing Gombert, Manchicourt or Lassus and we become once more the dreamers of another age.
