Anniversary Composers 2016

In this course we explore the life and works of a group of composers whose music is perhaps not at the centre of the standard concert repertoire. All of the selected composers share either a birth anniversary or a death commemoration in 2016, and their works range from Renaissance madrigals and Classical opera to French art songs and early 20th-century Modernism. The six featured composers are: Cipriano de Rore, Sebastián Durón, Giovanni Paisiello, Erik Satie, Francesco Paolo Tosti and Max Reger.
