Libelo

Sollazzo ⎜Nuit et jour

The Sollazzo ensemble is directed by the violist Anna Danilevskaia and brings together musicians with a passion for the repertoires of the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Through the repertoires of the French and Italian Ars Nova, this program offers an anthology of pieces that mention the stars and the night.

In the Middle Ages, the symbolism of the star referred to both the Virgin and the Lover, and so it is on the edge of courtly love and devotion that we find ourselves. The fascinating light of the stars and their unattainable, ideal beauty make them ideal symbols of sacred purity, but also of unattainable love, and they address both these facets in this concert.
