During this year’s Forum Musicum, Motio Concerti will perform pieces from the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries. Artists playing cornetts and historical trombones will present the beauty of the polyphony of Renaissance and early Baroque music.

The turn of the 16th and 17th centuries was a golden age for instruments such as the trombone and cornett. In Italy, they were used at that time on an unprecedented scale. Venice was of particular importance for works written for these instruments. Compositions created to be performed during ceremonies in the basilicas of San Marco or San Giorgio or Scuola Grande di San Rocco are often majestic forms with the participation of several dozen ensembles. The inaugural evening of the Forum Musicum festival will feature compositions by composers associated with Venice, such as Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli, Biagio Marini, Ascanio Trombetti, Cipriano de Rore, Giovanni Croce, Giovanni Picchi, Claudio Merulo, and Giovanni Buonamente.

During the concert in the Red Hall, Motio Concerti will perform pieces from the time when trombone and cornett had their heyday. The core of the ensemble is a group of musicians associated with Switzerland’s Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. The artists hail from the USA, Canada, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Mexico. They perform all over the world and specialise in late Renaissance and early Baroque music, in particular in the works of Italian and German composers.
