Tesoros sonoros del medioevo
Two hearts that beat with the same passion for medieval music. A game of two that leads us to the beautiful and unknown.
The portative organ and the citole were very popular instruments in the 13th and 14th centuries. When combined, they complement each other with very different timbres: one maintaining colourful note sounds while the other adds rhythmic character and energy with the movements of the plectrum.
Most of the music that has come down to us today is vocal, and although no scores of the instrumental part of vocal pieces have survived, we have evidence that instruments were used to accompany the voices. In addition to performing properly instrumental pieces (of which we do have some manuscripts), we also explore the sonic possibilities of the two instruments through vocal pieces in instrumental versions.
