Li tans nouveaus

album cover Li Tans Nouveaus

A bridge to the Middle Ages

In this creation, Constantinople delves into the music played, sung, and heard by the troubadours and trouvères.

As present-day musicians exploring such a repertoire, we sought to take up the same challenge, the challenge of spontaneous creation. The present interpretation (indeed a form of improvisation) is founded on the knowledge acquired and experienced by the musicians: in the case of singing, on an in-depth understanding of the musical literature and language of the Middle Ages; and in the case of instrumental performance practice, on a close acquaintance with what oral tradition has taught us.
