Getting Medieval

Music, Classical and opera

Trio Mediæval (vocal ensemble) with trumpeter/vocalist Arve Henriksen join for a concert where medieval, contemporary and improvised elements merge in a unique programme devised for Wigmore Hall. Medieval music, featuring twelfth-century Italian Laude, thirteenth-century French Notre Dame repertoire and Norwegian medieval ballads are performed alongside a number of newly commissioned pieces composed to medieval texts, specifically for these four musicians by Andrew Smith and Jon Balke. Plus, improvised sections.
