Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Alla piffaresca, musica rinascimentale per strumenti alti,” presents a rich musical corpus, in which the ancient "pifari" are the perfect instrument to create the typical climax of Renaissance- open parties, and noble and popular festivals. With a main office in Soresina, La Rossignol is a society between artists and researchers that wishes to promote, to produce and to diffuse some initiatives with the goal of the spread of ancient music. Using a study of direct and indirect sources, musicological researches, historical, organological and iconographical investigations, particular attention to the spectacular side of their own work led the members of the group, since 1987, to an active artistic career in Italy, Hungary, Austria, Read more Switzerland, France, Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Russia, India, China, Japan, Rumania, Cyprus, Espana, Syria, Lebanon, Moroc. Among the prestigious festivals in which they’ve performed we can remember above all Autunno Musicale in Como, International Venice Festival, Recitarcantando, le Colombiadi in Genova, le Settimane musicali in Ascona, il Carnevale di Venezia, and the International Reinaissance Festival of Israel.
