Convinced by a fantastic performance of the “Tagen Alter Musik”

tristan_feb_08_susanne“An evocative return in sound to the Middle Ages with the Boston Camerata… Twenty years ago the Boston Camerata caused a sensation with “Tristan and Isolde” as a medieval opera. That production’s inspiring Isolde is their new current director, Anne Azéma. The music is, to be sure, a montage of various sources from the 12th to 14th centuries. But thanks to first-class singers, who were sensitively accompanied by vielle, flute, cornetto, harp and rebec, there arose a sonic spell of love, from which no listener could escape.”
