m year 2022
ReRenaissance is in its third season.
On the one hand, the repertoire represents the international diversity of the sound world of the 15. and 16th century. The music spectrum is huge, especially secular music gets a lot of space. Italian and Spanish motets, French chansons, Polish psalms and much more reflect the internationality of the Renaissance sound world.
On the other hand, it is the declared goal of ReRenaissance to present regional musical treasures in their context. The connection to Basel is highlighted twice: A Wandel concert of Basel lute music in October provides insight into private musical life in Renaissance Basel, and in the spring the baptism of a great violin was celebrated, which was first mentioned in Basel in 1511 and is being reconstructed especially for the concert series.
One concert each is dedicated to the opus of the first music printer, again there is a sing-along project and
a dance concert.
The existing collaboration with the Paper Museum and the Historical Museum will be enriched by a cooperation with the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in 2022 (concerts in January and November).
