About

The dances presented on this 1997 recording are described in around a dozen manuscripts which are nearly all of Italian origin. The principal sources all start with a theoretical section on the concept of dance, placing it in a philosophical context, followed by choreographic descriptions, partly accompanied by music. Almost all the dances are attributed to two 15th-century masters, Domenico da Piacenza and Guglielmo Ebreo da Pesaro.

Formed in 1993, the prizewinning ensemble Les haulz et les bas has already won the hearts of audiences and critics throughout Europe, and brought hitherto unknown but ravishingly beautiful and exciting music to the concert stage. It has performed and given lectures at many leading early music festivals including Bruges, Antwerp, Utrecht, Cambridge and Berlin, at the Universities of Oxford and London, the Historic Brass Society and the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.

"The sound that will stay in my mind from Bruges 1993... . For the first time one could hear that the standard
15th-century [wind] ensemble made sense."
