About the Event
The twilight and its heralds
Music by Lawes, Purcell and others inspired by day and night’s most virtuosic heralds, the lark and nightingale.
Dramma Per Musica’s goals are clear. The group seeks the drama that is possible only through music; that confluence of emotion and reason through sound and language. This search has led them to the Italian, and Italianate, works of the 17th century, where composers and librettists sought classical models of musical expression and theatre and created the first Dramma per musica (Drama through music). They perform at BREMF with their core team of chitarrone, viola da gamba and voice. But the group itself is conceived as a modular one, adding continuo instruments or inviting singers to suit the programme and add to the drama.
