Flauto ultimo – Vox humana
Back by popular demand for their fourth Festival, the lively musicians of Solamente Naturali return with another invigorating program of music infused with classical and folk traditions. Led by world-renowned violinist Miloš Valent, these seven instrumentalists take us on a journey through centuries of music for the recorder, prized for its ability to evoke the sounds of the human voice. Join Solamente Naturali for a program exploring the mysterious and haunting tones of the Middle Ages, the dance-like joy of the Renaissance, and the splendor of the Baroque, all alongside the raucous and festive folk tunes that have endured for centuries.
“Full of imagination and a rugged, folk-infused virtuosity.”
Miloš Valent, artistic leader, violin & viola; Jan Rokyta, recorders & flutes; Dagmar Valentová, viola; Peter Spissky, violin & viola; Beiliang Zhu, violoncello; Doug Balliett, double bass; Byron Schenkman, harpsichord
