If Johannes Tinctoris (1435-1511) is today widely recognised as one of the most renowned music theorists of his time, he was also a perceptive observer of the musical practices of the Renaissance. After studying in Orléans, he held several positions in Cambrai, Liège and finally Naples.

Here his gifts as a composer could flourish at the court of King Ferrante of Aragon as a chaplain, legal advisor and music tutor of Ferrante’s daughter Beatrice.

This programme retraces his career through his extremely varied output: French and Italian songs, Mass movements, and instrumental pieces.

Le Miroir de Musique is an ensemble specialised in the music of the late middle ages and Renaissance.
