Middle-Ages and Renaissance music
An instrumental reinterpretation
For this creation, Constantinople approaches the music of the Middle Ages and of the Renaissance based on the musical manuscripts that have come down to us. Since there is little reliable information on the historic performance of this music, Constantinople reinterprets these manuscripts in its own way. In this spirit, the group creates instrumental arrangements of all the pieces and strives to recapture certain aspects of the performance practice and colors of Iranian art music.
