Ensemble Tramontana recreate the music of Medieval and Renaissance Europe by voyaging through the rich cultural interconnections of the era, exploring themes of travel, love, and madness. Winners of the 2011 Early Music Competition at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, we have performed at the Greenwich International Early Music Festival and Exhibition, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Handel House, community festivals, and more.
London has always been a very cosmopolitan place; it wasn’t just in the eighteenth century that European composers (such as Haydn in tonight’s later concert) sought success in the capital. The royal court in the Middle Ages and Renaissance was awash with musicians and composers, as well as dignitaries, from around Europe. In our programme this evening we present glimpses of the royal court over this period, with music by kings, composers and mercenaries in the courts of Richard I, Henry V and Henry VIII.
