Renaissance dances from the collection of John Playford

D

he dance book “The English Dancing Master” was published in London by John Playford only in 1651, but most of the dances it contains are much older; some even appear in Romeo and Juliet (1597) by William Shakespeare, while others can be found even a generation earlier in songs or instrumentals from the time of Queen Elizabeth I.

The notated music sometimes consists of only a single line, sometimes of a polyphonic composition for up to six instruments. The musicians sometimes have to improvise a lot. Tobie Miller and Sam Chapman bring the musician:s together to form a colorful and fun musical band, but sometimes a fiddle, lute, cittern or hurdy-gurdy play alone.
For the first time, ReRenaissance presents a dance-along concert. Véronique Daniels, Basel’s queen of Renaissance dance, offers a workshop for dance enthusiasts.

Véronique Daniels – dance; conducting workshops | Tobie Miller – hurdy-gurdy, voice, recorder; conducting music | Sam Chapman – lute, cittern; conducting music | Liza Sommers – Renaissance violin | Elizabeth Rumsey – bass viola da gamba
