The evolution of the instrumental suite from Medieval to the Baroque
The instrumental suite or sonata de camera – the practice of linking related pieces of music to form a larger work – began with dances in Medieval times. This practice was taken up by instrumentalists in the Renaissance and evolved into an important musical style in the Baroque.
In this concert, the Early Music Consort of Melbourne and the Rippon-Lea Baroque dancers will delight you with an exploration of the suite through the works of Attaingnant, Tomkins, Schein, Locke and others.
