The Triumphs of Maximilian

£12.00

Musuica Antiqua’s debut disc for Signum Records.

The Triumphs of Maximilian contains songs and instrumental music associated with the German court of Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian the first.

The early 16th  century produced European music of great power and innovation. Tthe best players and composers were increasingly mobile, and were aggressively ‘head-hunted’ from court to court. Nowhere was the resulting mix of styles and influences more clearly illustrated than at the German court of Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian the First. Old and new, polyphony and homophony, national and international, all blend together to produce a repertoire of great variety and richness. In music, as in the visual arts, Maximilian was a patron of unusual discrimination: the volumes of woodcuts by Dürer and Burgmair, commissioned to ensure that the Emperor’s fame outlived his reign, pay tribute to his artistic judgement, whilst the music of Isaac and Senfl, both in his employ, is in itself a great monument to him.

No praise is too high; they do everything with a pleasingly light touch and always with a real sensitivity to the music – Gramophone

I would recommend this disc strongly – Early Music Review
