17 October, Oslo ladegård: Journey back to the 14th century
The Norwegian early music trio Modus ensemble has been working in-depth with the music of the French 14th century composer Guillaume de Machaut. His poetry and music belongs among the finest and most significant from this period. He was both famous and well-travelled, and left behind roughly ten manuscripts that contain his entire oeuvre.
In line with the practices of Machaut's own times, Modus ensemble will improvise counter-voices and intermissions around the texts, using copies of Medieval string instruments and flutes. Actor Kai Remlov will recite the texts in Norwegian translations.
