Ciaramella, directed by Adam and Rotem Gilbert, brings to life medieval and early Renaissance music from historical events and manuscripts. The ensemble will present a program of Spanish Renaissance music on shawms, slide trumpets, bagpipes, recorders, and vihuela. Join us as we explore the road to Santiago and the great manuscripts of Segovia and Seville. Along the way we will examine the Spanish influence on Italian music and enjoy rousing dances from Spain and the New World. With music by Juan Vasquez, Juan del Encina, Diego Ortiz, Andrea Falconieri, Bartolomé de Selma y Salaverde, and the ever popular Anonymous!

Ciaramella released its debut CD Sacred and Secular Music from Renaissance Germany for Naxos in 2006 and Treasures of Burgundy for Yarlung Records in 2009.

“They bring old music to alluring life.”
