Fine Renaissance Italian Madrigals. Composed by Immigrants. What wine will you pair with our music selection? Awake your taste buds and your ears at this event!

Madrigals -- polyphonic secular songs written for as few as two voices, and as many as ten or more -- originated in Italy during the Renaissance. Though often regarded as the most quintessential of Italian music from the period, many of the influential madrigal composers in the early days of the genre turned out to be visitors or immigrants.

The musical selections on this concert celebrate these imported contributions. While the first set highlights the personal relationship between the composers, the rest of the program is organized by the subject matter of the poetry.
