Point/Counterpoint: Fuguing in Renaissance Music
Since 1980, the multi-instrumentalists of Piffaro have delighted audiences with polished performances of the diverse wind music of the late Medieval and Renaissance periods. In Piffaro’s final season with retiring founders and Artistic Directors Joan Kimball and Bob Wiemken, the ensemble returns to BEMF with a compositional journey featuring a vibrant selection of Renaissance counterpoint from Josquin, Morales, Gabrieli, and many others, which later developed into the formal Baroque fugal structures on which Bach built The Art of Fugue.
