The Royal Wind Music premiere their new programme Portrait of Albrecht Dürer at the festival Tage Alter Musik Regensburg.
Portrait of Albrecht Dürer: A musical biography of the master (1471–1528)
2021 marked the 550th anniversary of the birth of Albrecht Dürer, one of the leading artists of the Renaissance, following his steps from his birthplace Nuremberg to Italy and the Low Countries and playing music with a thematic connection to his drawings, paintings and engravings.
This programme will feature music associated with the court of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, Dürer’s patron, and compositions published in Nuremberg and Venice. We also connect a few of his works, like Melencolia I, Praying Hands and his self-portraits to songs and motets which are as impressive and moving as Dürer’s own works.
